- Project year: 2016
- Project location: Unawatuna, Galle – Sri Lanka
A quiet oasis of relaxation on the outskirts of Galle, this villa has been designed to be one which is opened to nature, where the thick green canopies of the rolling lands below, grace the view as far as the eye can see.
Created to provide a soothing and refreshing holiday experience, that would help to reconnect with the beauty of the countryside.
The bold use of vibrant contemporary colours decorate the walls and provide a contrast, brightening up the landscape. The traditional tile roof with the signature Palmyrah tree columns that carries it stand tall against the beauty of the sky while providing cover to a spacious and breezy living area, over-looking the infinity edged pool and the lush green landscape surrounding the property.
The villa Wambatu contains four bedrooms in the main building and expanding the space, the fifth ‘Pavilion’ style bedroom is placed in an isolated viewing point. There are several options for one to seek sanctuary and solitude, given its wide variety of spaces. The open concept living area is further pronounced with another enclosed tv lounge and a library which offer magnificent views of the great Sri Lankan out-doors beaming with quiet green calmness. A touch of class has been added to the interior décor, tastefully and intricately crafted, making this a truly iconic building.
A separate kids pool/jacuzzi provides a special fun space for the young as well as old, while a beautifully manicured garden around the villa provides further options for those seeking a peaceful refuge in pure green tranquillity surrounding this oasis.
As architects, we design buildings, while the clients add their personalitysays Archt. Muditha Prematilaka
Indeed, the ‘Villa Wambatu’ lends evidence on how an architect and a client have closely collaborated to create a landmark building.
