Relax Amongst The Sri Lankan Mountains In This Expansive ‘Holiday Home’

Sep 3, 2020

Life has a tendency to overwhelm. Endless workdays, continuous social interactions, and your very own expectations can sometimes seem cumbersome. That’s why many of us search for ways to escape from the throes of everyday monotony. Holiday homes, in particular, offer an enticing promise of reclusion, respite, and reconnection.

For Colombo-based architecture firm Damith Premathilake, that was the driving force behind the Sri Lankan “Holiday Home.” This aptly-named abode sits within the mountainous range just outside of Diyathalawa, shrouding itself in pine, and ruminating on its surroundings during the area’s temperate summers. While the home started its life as a simple caretaker’s hut, it has since grown thanks to the utilization of repurposed timber trimmings, boxes, and pallets. An outdoor socialization area, shielded from the elements and recessed into the hillside, adopts elegantly-placed stone flooring, stylish patio furniture, and supportive steel columns. Within, the two-story dwelling takes on a simple layout, including a small upstairs bedroom, an optimized kitchen area, and a single bath. Head to Damith Premathilake’s Behance for a closer look.
