About This Book

Indigenous architectural and cultural traditions, colonial incursions and the demands of living in a tropical environment have combined to produce a distinctive Sri Lankan architectural style: thick lime-washed walls, tall windows and doors, terracotta or granite tile floors, open pavilions and verandas, courtyard gardens, elaborately carved furniture and vibrant handlooms. This book showcases over 30 of the finest traditional and modern dwellings in Sri Lanka, from private homes to retreats and resorts, all designed by the island's most creative architects and interior designers, including some by the late Geoffrey Bawa that have never been seen before. The stunning photographs within these pages convey the essentials of the Sri Lankan lifestyle, however the design ideas here can be applied anywhere in the tropics.
