This project provides 100 houses in a Muslim fishing village, in the region of Tissamaharama, on the southeast coast of Sri Lanka, following the destruction caused by the 2004 tsunami.Save this picture!© Dominic SansoniShigeru Ban’s aim was to adapt the houses to their climate, to use local labour and materials to bring profit to the region, and to respond to the villagers’ own requirements through direct consultation. For example, kitchens and bathrooms are included within each house, as requested by the villagers, but a central covered area separates them from the living accommodation, as stipulated by the government.Save this picture!© Dominic SansoniThe covered area also provides an entertainment space from which women can retreat to maintain privacy. Local rubber-tree wood was used for partitions and fittings, and compressed earth blocks for walls.Project gallerySee allShow lessNanak Emporium / MACh ArquitetosSelected ProjectsCentral Mosque of Pristina Competition Entry / Tarh O AmayeshUnbuilt ProjectProject locationAddress:Kirinda, Sri LankaLocation to be used only as a reference.
