Galle Fort Residence

A stunning work by Annika Fernando

Galle Fort Residence

Located in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Galle Fort on the Southern Coast of Sri Lanka, this home makes an architectural statement fitting it’s beautiful setting. Annika’s interpretation for the interior was to draw on elements and strengths of the location’s dutch heritage whilst playing with finishes and details to create a contemporary space. Walls were kept in their original aged finish contrasting with clean elegant finishes showcasing the clients’ incredible Sri Lankan contemporary art collection.

Goat Fell by TearDrop

Perched amongst tea bushes amidst the Concordia Estate, high up on a hill near Nuwara Eliya, Goatfell is a luxurious, recently renovated four-bedroom tea bungalow hotel. This former estate manager’s bungalow still resonates with the warmth and up country charm of a bygone era. With gourmet food and Butler service, guests can relax on covered verandas, in the warmth of the log fired sitting room or enjoy tea field views from the infinity swimming pool.

BAILLIE STREET MERCHANTS

Designed by Annika Fernando Design

Baillie Street Merchants

Located in Colombo Fort, the central business district of Colombo. The fort area is a mixture of buildings from many eras of the cities past. Baillie Street, now Mudalige Mawatha, is wedged between Chatham Street and Prince Street. Tucked away in the charm of the old buildings is a smaller structure which was known as the city’s first gambling spot.

It was redesigned as Sri Lanka’s first speak-easy bar which is disguised behind Merchants, a tea and coffee shop.

A dramatic palette of finishes injecting drama and sophistication awaits the visitor who makes it past the code-protected black door. All furniture and light fittings were custom made and a collection of finishes have allowed for a unique and theatrical environment unique and all works beautifully with the graphics created for the project.

Botanik

by Cantaloupe

Botanik by Cantaloupe

Botanik was conceptualized and created by Cantaloupe & Co. to
present a lifestyle venue with botanical elements represented in its
ambiance, food and beverage. Located on the 8th floor rooftop of
the Fairway hotel in the commercial, tourist and historical hub
which is the Colombo Fort, Botanik is the perfect viewing gallery to
Colombo’s rapidly growing skyline. It has one of the best rooftop
views in Colombo. Building on this location we created an indoor
– outdoor space that transforms from a Bistro Café during the
day to a Bistro Bar by night.
