Deshamanya Geoffrey Manning Bawa was a renowned Sri Lankan architect who nearly single handedly formed the style known as tropical modernism. The unassuming looking house is where he stayed for 40 years. It incorporates many of his influences. His bedrooms and office have been kept as he used them. You'll see his vintage cars, a collection of art and sculpture, documents, drawings and other artefacts from his life. The house is also used as guest accommodation these days, so you can book a room here if you wish. That will give you access to the terrace.

What a place to be... Wonderful experience & video clipping on his house development; thought process gone into while making this house is tremendous learning... Beautiful house with ethnicity heritage outlook
Had a tour of Bawa's house. The lady manager is not very pleasant in talking to the guests. Felt that she does not want any tourist coming. If you asked her a question about Bawa's likes and dislikes, she would not know. The trust should have someone professional and folower of Bawa to give he tour with excitement. Had an enchanting tour and so many memoria in the house belonging to Bawa.
An inspiring house/office to visit, especially after one has seen Lunuganga garden project; One can easily understand and appreciate how Mr. Bawa has successfully applied same principles of design in this relatively tighter space (compared to Lunuganga) and has created wonder with natural light, visual of trees being framed through openings. Must say, A Very nicely maintained property especially considering its almost white inside. Must visit for anyone who likes to see unique spaces/houses. Architects, Designers, Photographers should not miss. Cheers! Sanket Mumbai, India
Finely designed shelter by Geoffrey Bawa, depicting his dedication towards the world of Architecture.
Rude staff, racist and biased. They should realize that we are not visiting for free we are paying to visit.
