NATURAL BEAUTY
The Sri Lankan holiday home blends into its surroundings, offering open spaces that emphasise its tropical landscape
Aidan Imanova

Situated in the small fishing village of Kottegoda, near Hiriketiya beach in the southern province of Sri Lanka, the K House offers an architecture that is inspired by its tropical setting, using natural materials and climate constraints to inform its design.

Designed by Danish firm Norm Architects and Chinese studio Aim Architecture, K House is a secluded beachfront property surrounded by lush vegetation and striking views over the ocean, boasting an architecture that effortlessly blends into its surroundings through the use of large openings, soft transitions and natural materials.

The exclusive villa resort is comprised of two peaked-roof concrete buildings – East House and West House – which together form an L-shape, framing a central garden and pool area that slopes down towards the spotless sandy beach.
