Geoffrey Bawa, the renowned architect, was commissioned by Ena de Silva, wellknown pioneer in Batik designing, to build a house for her at the beginning of the 1960's.
For Colombo, in the 1960's it was a revolutionary creation and Bawa went on to become one of Asia's leading architects.
This house became famous and is arguably more revered abroad than in Sri Lanka.
I was enthralled with this house when I read a feature on it in the Hi Magazine.
Now I understand it is to be demolished to accommodate a car park for a hospital!
Cannot somebody save this house , which should be classified as a national monument?
