PANEL 1 – TWIN HOUSE

A twin house designed for the client’s two sons in an adjoining urban block of land in Rajagiriya was the brief. The houses were designed for the two sons and their families to grow independently or together. The result of the client’s dream was a three level, three bedroom with an attic studio space suburban scale sculpture.

Situated on a site in an inner Colombo urban suburb the twin house is set back in the front of the block, to create the car port and services area at ground and roof terrace above capturing the picturesque view of the Heen Canal.
