The Estate Bungalow By Narein Perera
This private, three-leveled bungalow in Sri Lanka was built by small Colombo-based practice Narein Perera. The hut-like hideaway is made of steel, timber and bamboo, situated on top of a huge estate at the border of the Sri Lankan jungle.
It allows an unspoilt view over the valley below and the hills beyond. The architecture is inspired by the form of the so-called Chena Watch-Hut. The watch-huts are elevated refugees for Sri Lankan farmers to protect their cultivation overnight. The Estate Bungalow serves the owner to oversee the functioning of his estate, too, while resting and getting together with the family at once.
