Office and residence of an architect, this amazing building located in Rajagiriya Sri Lankaa, keeps the indoor temperature several degrees cooler than outdoors thanks to built and landscape strategies that create a particular microclimate. Welcome inside Studio Dwelling, an amazing structure where reality runs beyond expectations and contradictions play their role in redefining beauty.
Palinda Kannangara Architects has developed a green project where the reality of scenery is not submitted by climate and technology doesn’t incarcerate primordial feelings. Conceived like a fortification and made with locally available materials, interior structure design reveals a contemporary home with refined and simple furnishings featured no windows to let spaces be enveloped by nature. Although located near a series of high-rise buildings and close to the main road, this “hidden” place puts silence against noise, emptiness against congestion, simplicity against complexity.
The architectural project signed by Palinda Kannangara focuses on recreating the space, combining design and lifestyle beyond client’s expectations and sensibility. Society, culture and nature of Sri Lanka require architects to considered buildings as sanctuaries from the stresses of modern society with ecologically sensible solutions applied to urban design.
