33rd Lane Colombo 03
1960-1970

The house in 33rd Lane is an essay in architectural bricollage. In 1958 Bawa bought the third in a row of four small houses which lay along a short cul-de-sac at the end of a narrow suburban lane and converted it into a pied-à-terre with living room, bedroom, tiny kitchen and room for a servant. When the fourth bungalow became vacant this was colonised to serve as dining room and second living room. Ten years later the remaining bungalows were acquired and added into the composition and the first in the row was demolished to be replaced by a four-storey tower.

The Geoffrey Bawa residence is considered a special architectural marvel which also houses art and artifacts from the collection of the Late Archt. Geoffrey Bawa. Whist the Geoffrey Bawa Trust endeavors to encourage stays for those enthusiasts of Architecture and the Art, it is important to note that this residence is not run as a regular hotel.The two rooms available are within a suite on the 1st floor. They are attached and come with one common bathroom and a sitting room. The 3rd floor is a loggia and the 4th is an open viewing deck.

The rooms are given only to a single party at any one time.
