Inspiration and Site

Posted: October 17, 2012 in Uncategorized

As i faced certain difficulties in finding a closed road, I selected a site located opposite Beira Lake which was also known as the Colombo Commercial Company(CCC) before it was shut down due to  illegal charges and for few other court cases. The main reason for me to choose this area was because of the magnificent British architecture and the history of this site.

I was inspired by Venice, in Las Vegas, which had a concept of an enclosed street,with the same mood as in a street.   This inspired me to create the High Street in an enclosed space, where people feel more entertained, relaxed and finds shopping a pleasure rather than a hassle.
