Isfahan House
Dehiwala, Sri Lanka
Private residence situated in the coastal town of Dehiwala. It rests amidst a series of open courtyards, and is accessed via a long arcade - evoking elements of Moorish and Mogul architecture - which leads into the house. The residence includes a guest lobby, living room, dining hall, bedrooms, office space, a separate prayer room, and a pavilion. Walls are mud washed, and Indian Kota Stone paving is used for the floors. The principal building materials are rubble, reinforced cement concrete, brick, tiles, local teak, and hand-made glazed ceramic tiles used for bathroom walls and ponds.
