Geoffrey Bawa — comfort futures

A space to be experienced, Bawa designed the hotel with the intention of creating a spatial and visual sequence to each aspect of the building – visitors arrive at the property via a long driveway that opens to reveal the submerged green hotel. Entering the hotel under a huge slanted canopy that angles down towards the entrance to a compressed, enclosed walkway, the visitor winds through the boulder lined passageway before entering the open-air lobby with its panoramic views of the Kandalama Tank and the monument of Sigiriya in the distance.
