For the Business Traveller, Travel does not have to mean impersonal hotels and identity less service any more. Just Ten Minutes from Colombo’s Commercial heart, and equipped with a mini business Centre, The Tower by Jeffrey Bawa is the stay of choice for the Discerning Business traveller. Irrespective of whether you are traveling on Business or simply pleasure, The Tower by Geoffrey Bawa Invites you to enter an era where buildings were a work of art rather than an empty impersonal space.
At the beginning of the 1960s Bawa had built a simple pavilion house for Pin and Pam Fernando on a fairly small plot in a short cul¬de-sac off Kannangara Mawatha. Bawa had been experimenting with tower houses ever since completing the house for Peter Keuneman and had recently added a tower to his own house in 33rd Lane. He tucked the new house into a corner of the Fernando’s' garden and let it grow up between the branches of a tall bo tree. Visitors arrive at a porch at the end of the cul-de-sac and are led via a long toplit tunnel to the base of the tower. Kitchen and dining room are on the ground floor, the sitting room is on the first floor, the bedroom is on the second floor and the top floor is given over to a roof terrace. Offering an alternative prototype for the tropical urban house, The Tower by Bawa is spatially innovative and an example of a new 'stripped-down' aesthetic that would reappear in Bawa's work with increasing frequency.
The Tower is located just Ten Minutes from Colombo’s Commercial heart.
