NILAVELLI

The stunning nature of the site was the main inspiration and led to the key design ideals of the project. The development would exist as one with it’s natural environment which is a part of a vast and interesting ecosystem, moving forward to compliment it’s surroundings and uplift it. 

The resort consists of a collection of 60 stunning Island homes and 50 Resort Chalets in Nilaveli the east coast of Sri Lanka. The 26 acre private resort, on the Indian Ocean is surrounded by lush greenery, thick vegetation and waterways, offering a breathtaking coastal retreat all year round. 

The 60 spacious villas come in 3 and 4 bedroom layouts featuring expansive gardens, light filled interiors, parking and a private swimming pool. The living and dining rooms blur the line between indoor and outdoor space, while offering complete privacy. 

Contemporary architecture acts as a striking counterpoint to the lush and colorful plant life surrounding the architecture, giving you the opportunity to immerse yourself in another world. 

Unmatched, five star living, with state of the art fitness center, yoga pavilions and luxury spas. Escape the ordinary, in eco-chic, beachfront chalets and villas that combine the best of island life, golfing, special types of water activities such as snorkeling, whale/dolphin watching 


 

The internal spaces all open out towards sea and the verandas and walkways create a transition space which blurs the line between in and out. The two main pavilions accentuate the center of the property while the rooms and standalone suites hug the inward periphery of the land. This layout was used to provide maximum privacy to the guests as well as create informal spaces between rooms which had lush tropical planting and provided intermediate points of rest & interest. The totality of the design seeks to capture a simplicity of form which is subtle and timeless, from which the natural beauty of the site can be enjoyed to the fullest.

LE GRAND

Le Grand is perfectly positioned on a promontory that overlooks both the picturesque Fort and the Indian Ocean. The challenge was to relate new to the old, while attempting to create a building that represented its own age with integrity.

The Hotel is articulated as a three-story structure, half of which is cut into the ground, keeping the building's profile low in sympathy with the scale of the surrounding buildings. Le Grand was built as a series of picture frames, each window framing a stunning Panorama.

When keeping in mind the History and character of the Galle fort, we opted for the use of materials that would respond to the native character; such as using grout less stone wall and off form concrete walls, we were able to create a harmonious balance.

AMAYA BEACH RESORT

Set on 10 acres of land by the sea, Amaya Beach, has been designed to house 125 keys each with an ocean view.

 

The concept for this exquisite hotel was derived from a pavilion based concept similar to South Indian temple architecture.

 

The design ethos used was a diffusion between the exterior and the interior, creative vistas of spaces and playing on the five senses using the three elements of water, wind and fire.

 

The inclusion of a large deck helped create a unique atmosphere for the resort and spa. The planning guards privacy and optimizes convenience, in a step by step walk through impression to simplify guest progression through the resort, creating an exciting discovery of surprises with refreshing sunlit courtyards, niches with sculptures and smooth pools of clear water.

THE LANGHAM

The Apothecaries building as it was known in its heyday was a purpose built departmental store built in 1915. The restoration of the colonial Era departmental store required a thorough understanding of the layers of history within Fort from how the buildings and street form evolved from Portuguese to Dutch through to British times. 

 

Being a restoration of a listed building, our architectural intervention had to maintain the integrity of structure, yet the client required a proposal for a luxury hotel in order to make the project viable in which we had to come up with the maximum room count along with providing extensive back of house areas. 

The services and facilities required for the hotel to function were extensive and it was a challenge to incorp-orate all into the existing building. The key to the entire project was to provide as many rooms as possible with views out to the historic Fort area while still maintaining the external façade of the building. Our proposal utilized the existing column bay positions so that the external rhythm of window placement was not disturbed with internal partitions.
