Product description

"Sri Lanka Style" 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 world-renowned architect Geoffrey Bawa that have never been seen before. These houses demonstrate the essentials of the Sri Lankan lifestyle-spaces open to the environment and the natural use of space and decor-and contribute to a palpable sense of peace and discipline. In addition, there are practical design ideas that can be applied to any tropical locale.
