The design intends to serve as a temporary abode for a group of historians with a desire to immerse themselves into the lifestyle, culture and customs of Kandy, Sri Lanka. The home reflects the landscape through the incorporation of a stream of organic interior elements amidst a grid of columns. The stream serves as a visual and physical circulation guide, inviting locals to the core cooking and dining areas while enveloping the travelers' private work and sleeping spaces. The design draws from traditional homes in relation to living arrangements, interior elements, categorization of space and functionality.  High Resolution Portfolio
