The proposal was to build a house for a newly married couple in Colombo. The Client wanted to have a house with minimal requirements of two rooms, two bathrooms, pantry, living, dining and a garage. They had allocated only 2 million LKR for the project.
Having the design generator as the project cost, there were other factors that helped to bring life into the design. Above all, the Client has a very simple and minimalistic lifestyle. They love nature and Traditional Sri Lankan Architecture. Such characteristics of them helped to have more open spaces merging the interiors with outside garden spaces. The floor area of the house was maintained at 83.83 sqm. due to cost constraints. The materials were chosen carefully to bring-out a traditional Sri Lankan style into the spaces while maintaining the cost at a bare minimum. Towards the end of the project, the client managed to pull another 0.7 million LKR in for final finishes, landscaping and furniture. Thus the total construction cost was managed within 2.7 million LKR .
