tangalle bay beach hotel (cSLa #8)

This gesture of poetic modernism on the Tangalle bay in southern shores of S.L is still looking good, even after all the harassments (renovations) she had to face. One of my favourite buildings. Though the floors are now covered with some deco tiles and much of the finer details are hidden under layers of coarse paint one can still see the true beauty of raw modernism. Exposed block walls and exposed timer shuttered sofits etc. are still visible.

Architects – Valentine Goonasekera and Chris De Saram
