Journey to The High Street

Posted: October 17, 2012 in Uncategorized

As an interior design student studying in Academy of Design. I was assigned to choose a project of any desire. And i chose The High Street. (example of a high street)

An example for a high street in Victoria street – Edingburgh

As an individual i feel there is no proper street to shop in Colombo to enjoy shopping, other than the streets of Pettah. Which is the commercial shopping entity within Colombo. (Pictures of Pettah)

Busy streets in Pettah with vehicles and people.

But many avoid because of congestion of people and vehicles. Also the Pettah market is dominated by the males, the ladies do not feel free to shop and avoid shopping due to the lack of security and comfort. These were some problems which lead to design a space where these problems could be minimized.
