Coconut Tree Column
House, Sri Lanka

The house is approached through a coconut grove via a footpath down a slope towards the ocean. The single storey house is submerged into the hillside allowing the green roof garden to be entered directly from the slope – a seamless junction integrating house and hillside.

The open sided living room has views across the infinity pool to the ocean. Courtyards and landscape penetrate all areas of house and all bedrooms and bathrooms open onto a private open-to-sky green courtyards. The house is constructed of fair-face brick walls, fair-face concrete columns and roof slab and screens of coconut tree columns.
