The New Sri Lankan House surveys the development of private houses in the 21st century in a variety of locations around the island. Most are the work of well established architects, many of whom are of course deeply influenced by the great Geoffrey Bawa.
The author traces the evolution of residence styles in both urban and rural areas through the inclusion of plans, sections and elevations, full-colour photographs and interviews with owners and architects. Of paramount importance to these Sri Lanka house designs are sustainability and suitability to site and climate, topics that are investigated in depth. This beautiful book will both educate and entertain whether you're an architect, designer or simply somebody who enjoys looking at beautiful homes.
