[07/12/20]   Amaya Beach Resort & Spa

Set on 10 acres of land by the sea, Amaya Beach, has been designed to house 125 keys each with an ocean view. The concept for this exquisite hotel was derived from a pavilion based concept similar to South Indian temple architecture.

The design ethos used was a diffusion between the exterior and the interior, creative vistas of spaces and playing on the five senses using the three elements of water, wind and fire.

The inclusion of a large deck helped create a unique atmosphere for the resort and spa. The planning guards privacy and optimizes convenience, in a step by step walk through impression to simplify guest progression through the resort, creating an exciting discovery of surprises with refreshing sunlit courtyards, niches with sculptures and smooth pools of clear water.

The site which occupies an elevated strip of land that has a unique panoramic view of the Indian Ocean. The main idea behind the design was to capture as much of the stunning view as possible. 

Simplicity of design and the almost symmetrical arrangement of spaces was partly inspired by traditional Sri Lankan Architectural typology. 
A clear and clean palette of materials like timber, white cement and rough plastered walls was used to create a simple structure which merged with the landscape. 

The internal spaces all open out towards sea and the verandas and walkways create a transition space which blurs the line between in and out. The two main pavilions accentuate the center of the property while the rooms and standalone suites hug the inward periphery of the land. This layout was used to provide maximum privacy to the guests as well as create informal spaces between rooms which had lush tropical planting and provided intermediate points of rest. 

The totality of the design seeks to capture a simplicity of form which is subtle and timeless, from which the natural beauty of the site can be enjoyed to the fullest.

Le Grand, Galle

Le Grand is perfectly positioned on a promontory that overlooks both the picturesque Fort and the Indian Ocean. The challenge was to relate new to the old, while attempting to create a building that represented its own age with integrity. The Hotel is articulated as a three-story structure, half of which is cut into the ground, keeping the building's profile low in sympathy with the scale of the surrounding buildings. Le Grand was built as a series of picture frames, each window framing a stunning Panorama.

When keeping in mind the History and character of the Galle fort, we opted for the use of materials that would respond to the native character; such as using grout less stone wall and off form concrete walls, we were able to create a harmonious balance.

Fort Bazaar – Galle
Photographer: Kasun Wickramage

Fort Bazaar is located within the 17th Century world heritage site of Galle Fort. In order to maintain the character of the property, the existing footprint of the site was maintained and re-built along similar dimensions. The use of contemporary materials was limited, as we intended to remain true to building materials used within the Heritage site.

The re-interpretation of the door and window stylings, the use of cut cement/patterned tiling for floors, the installation of tin ceilings with motifs along with a mix of modern furniture and wall elements helped give a contemporary edge to the property.

The Veranda was a highlight, creating the ability to enjoy the vibrant streetscape while influencing the inner workings of the building. Most of the older trees were retained, while the old banyan tree was an outdoor feature to which the courtyard was oriented towards. The project was both challenging and inspiring and PWA takes pride in being a part of preserving an architectural heritage.

Residence at Buller’s Lane, Colombo.

The Client desired a contemporary house with a twist of classic European detailing. The design was a juxtaposition of glamour and simplicity, private and social spaces with accents of foliage and classical detailing.

The project site of 3800sqf had a natural slope, allowing for a basement to be carved in one block, creating a split-level concept.

The intimacy of a home and communal spaces for entertaining guests were both created. The central courtyard was flanked by a large veranda for the living room and a pantry which extended as an informal dining space. Private spaces in the upper floor were screened by louvered panels which provided privacy, while allowing for breeze and light.

The vintage furniture complemented the warm natural timber flooring. The intricate light fixtures added glamour, while the soft furnishing and artwork added color to the simple tones. The project successfully captured the Client’s aesthetic and programmatic requirements.

Restoration of a Planter’s Bungalow in Talahena. @ Talahena, Sri Lanka

Talahena Bungalow

A magnificent planter’s bungalow in an extremely dilapidated and marred state was presented to the architects to restore and revive back to its old splendor and grandeur. What has been produced now with careful attention to detail and loving care in restoration has surpassed expectations and has created gracious verandas and voluminous, high ceiling spaces for gathering and resting in. The additional buildings imitates the colonial architecture meticulously and is hardly distinguishable from the original buildings.

Who we are....

PWA is an architectural and design firm in Sri Lanka, made up of highly creative and talented architects. We specialize in architectural, interior and furniture design. We have acquired extensive professional expertise designing simple, advanced, complex and iconic buildings regardless of its size, context or scope.

Each PWA project provides a new beginning and is the result of an in-depth and meticulous design process. The approach we take on every job is considered a unique challenge and an exciting opportunity to transform the architectural design into a transcending reality. Our ambition is simple; to develop the most efficient and dynamic buildings and modern home design, be it residential, commercial or recreational including restaurants, villas, spas, resorts and hotels. We listen to our client at the start of the process, understanding their needs and aspirations on house design, but not limiting ourselves to the brief. Instead, we aim to produce design-led solutions which are tailor made to visualize their context which were unable to be expressed in mere words.

We draw on our extensive knowledge and expertise in order to translate modern house designs into reality. We embrace each element, be it creation, construction or performance. We predominantly feature materials and textures including fire, wind, water, sand, stone and timber in our designs. We aim to create emotional and visual sensations within the user’s mind, by manipulating the space which flows from the inside to the outside combining both shade and light. Our house designs aim to deliver buildings which are visually compelling and functionally efficient. Modern house plans make modern living easier and more appealing than ever before.

We offer a full range of comprehensive consultancy services provided by a multi-faceted, multi-disciplinary group of designers. Our services include project evaluation, total design services, solutions and project administration. With various features and sizes to choose from, our tailor made modern house plans will cater to your own individual tastes. We pay attention to detail which ensures the company policy is in play by finalizing each project as per the allocated time and budget. For us, architecture is a journey rather than a conceptual exercise.
