Ratnayake house, Makola

Off the main road from Kiribathgoda town to Makola a certain short gravel road brings you to a vertical lined gate flanked on the left by a very high wall. This is the entrance to a long narrowing strip of land built up into a spacious contemporary modern house for a businessman, his wife and three children.

The narrow land which slopes up towards a temple on a hillock is built up in four levels through which one experiences a linear arrangement of spaces with a few punctuations and surprises.
