It was a pleasure to be able to visit Geoffrey Bawa’s house and be able to gain an insight into his home and way of life. A remarkable, innovative and highly talented person. An absolute “must” visit when visiting Colombo.

The beautifully designed house by Sri Lankan architect Geoffrey Bawa is certainly worth a look. It is so cleverly laid out to catch the breezes and maintains a lightness about it in every room. The thoughtful placement of objects and the artefacts there are lovely.
