Located on a hilltop site facing the ocean, the floor, walls and ceiling of this building frame three different views.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki HiraiThe first is the view of the ocean seen from the jungle in the valley, framed perpendicularly by the external corridor from the existing house to this house and the roof. The next is the horizontal scenery of the ocean from the hilltop framed by the large roof supported by poles of 22 m span and the floor.Save this picture!SectionThe last is the view of the cliff which glows red during sunset; this is viewed through a square frame composed of 4 m solid wood in the main bedroom.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki HiraiThe large roof is first covered by light cement boards for water proofing and secondly covered by woven coconut leave material, which is often used for property fences not only to block the strong daylight but also to blend the building into the local ambience. The ceiling is composed of teak, 80mm wide and 3mm thick woven in a large wickerwork pattern.Project gallerySee allShow lessRedevelopment of the Praia dos Moinhos Beach / M-ArquitectosSelected ProjectsA Theory of Architecture Part 2: The Adaptive Design MethodArticles Share CopyHouses•Weligama, Sri Lanka Year: last_img read more
