Rithihi Saree Shop
Colombo, Sri Lanka
A shop located in a renovated colonial residential building in the heart of Colombo that sells a variety of goods, from traditional clothing to jewellery. The load-bearing cross walls of laterite blocks were largely retained and the existing columns were extended vertically and laid to rest on new footings. Two levels were added to the original structure as well as two cubic structures, which are made of simple brick and mortar, topped by steel-framed roofs and painted saffron-red.
