Design Studio was established in 2000 in order to provide a total design package for the client that offers a complete range of professional services: Architectural, Quantity Surveying, Engineering, Technological Services, Landscaping, Interior and Furniture Design. Over the past decade the company has been responsible for a wide range of striking works: personalized houses; apartment complexes; hotels and offices; architectural retrofitting; interior refurbishments, mainly focusing on community architecture.
We take consideration of clients’ interests; the purpose of the building; the social and cultural values of the community; the environment conditions of the site; and ecological sustainability. Our design vision is to focus on Ecologically Sustainable Design by taking principles of Biomimicry; emulating or taking inspiration from nature as a design approach. The firm’s motto entails, ‘doing the most with least means’-dematerialization. This involves conceptualizing interior and exterior spaces and fulfilling the requirements of the client, based on ecological concepts. We allow space optimization as the main strategy to effectively help integrate the physical attributes; form, envelope, material and technology by following concepts and principles of ecological sustainability. This philosophy as a design approach plays an important role to work out a comprehensive building within the limited parameters of quality, cost and time. This entails to achieve an environmentally viable, socially acceptable and economically feasible design without relying on the latest trends and styles. This reflects a unique identity of its own with a touch of cultural and ecological significance.
We designed and constructed many voluntary projects especially designing an array of religious building such as Buddhist temples, mosques, churches and community housing complexes especially for tsunami affected families in Sri Lanka.
