    Brief House

    We visited the beautiful Brief House & Gardens.

    This used to be a rubber plantation, it was bought by Geoffery Bawa, who was a lawyer. Hence the name "Brief".

    Sitting room, Brief House

    The House belonged to Bevis Bawa, who's younger brother was Geoffery, a famous Sri Lankan architect. I loved the architecture of this place, quite plain with wonderful artwork here & there.
