K House by Norm Architects

K House is a minimalist residence located in the Southern Province of Sri Lanka, designed by Norm Architects. K House is a 6 bedroom villa resort in one of Sri Lanka’s most unspoiled coastal areas. Nestled within a secluded bay at the end of a narrow, green lane, the property consists of 2 houses. Set in a large green garden with beautiful grown shade trees, plenty of palm trees, direct acces to the beach and a filtered salt water infinity pool. The exclusive villa resort is comprised of two individual buildings; the east house placed atop a hilly part of the property, opening up to the sea, and the west house slightly tucked away, providing a more sheltered feel. Together the two form an L-shape, framing the garden and centrally placed pool area.

The barn-like structure effortlessly blends into the landscape, enclosing the outdoor common areas while framing the general view towards the sea. The architecture is composed of natural materials; local teak wood, polished terrazzo, facades of polished cement and outdoor areas of local granite stone. The roof is made of recycled terracotta tiles which complements the overall natural look and tactile feel of the house. There are outdoor living and dining spaces, porches, with switching levels defining thresholds between them. Large sliding doors open up key spaces to the garden. The generous roofs of the two buildings cover these indoor/outdoor spaces from rain and sun, allowing this special feeling of being in nature in a protected and comfortable manner.
