Sierra Construction Website – sierra.lk

In 1981, with the dawn of the open economy, six enterprising individuals teamed up to form what was to become one of Sri Lanka’s best known enterprises. Sierra Construction Limited was incorporated to venture into the fields of Civil and Telecommunication Engineering, sectors that were hitherto solely dominated by foreign companies or by companies with foreign collaborations.
Within two decades, Sierra rose to become the market leader in Telecommunication Engineering. The boom in the construction industry opened up many opportunities for Sierra and the company has today evolved to great heights handling large construction projects relating to Water Supply & Sewerage, Power, Roads, Buildings, Irrigation and Pilling besides Civil & Telecommunication.
Acknowledged for its expertise, reliability and superior quality of work, both locally and internationally, Sierra is today a prominent player in General Engineering Construction in Sri Lanka. The company has also gained from opportunities offered in global markets, with businesses established in India, Maldives, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Australia.

Existential Living Inspired By The Vernacular

Inspired by nature and drawing on the colours and texture of traditional vernacular buildings of Sri Lanka, Archt Mohan Wijayaratna created a home that reflects an existential sense to its inhabitants.

“My design concept was based on the client’s wish to live close to nature amidst its calm, thus my design strategy was to create a journey which controlled a sequence of events that harmonised with its environment, incorporating the essence of nature that surrounded it and to be true to the materials used,” said Archt Mohan Wijayaratna.

A gravel path leads to the timber streaked gate through which you get a glimpse of the building and the large forecourt which acts as a large gathering space. This creates an inviting sense of grandeur. The forecourt is at two levels, the upper level provides ample parking space while steps that lead to the lower level act as a seating area as well. There is a built-in seat shaded by a tree at the lower level.

A timber framework with textured skin positioned at its perpendicular plane, half conceals the view of the interior, transforming the horizontal transitional space into its vertical surface. The first internal space that you encounter is the lobby with a shallow, green pond which creates a pause and evokes tranquillity. This lobby space transcends to the main living/dining area on the left which flows out to the garden through a verandah. From the living/dining area you can let your gaze rest upon the pond with its single tree or the paddy field that lies beyond the rear garden. The ground floor comprises of the entrance lobby, main living/dining area, the bedrooms, family dining, pantry and kitchen creating a tranquil space in which the family can go about their daily activities with ease. The dining area is a double height space which connects the ground floor to the first floor.

The first floor was designed as a separate space where the owners can spend their leisure time and entertain visitors. The master bedroom and the entertainment area in the first floor leads to an open terrace which incorporates a view of the paddy field. The upper floor landing and entertainment area is connected by a tunnel like transitional space which comprises of a narrow passageway with a low ceiling. As you walk along this narrow path way you will be treated to the serene vista of the paddy field on one side and a view of the entrance forecourt on the other side.

The Architect drew inspiration from traditional vernacular buildings of Sri Lanka to create an existential sense in the building. The colour brown acted as the main base to its colour concept, which was derived from the raw form of wattle and daub walls of traditional construction. The colour and texture of timber paneling was derived from traditional constructions while tiling and external pavings (grey, grayish brown and brown) were used to resonate nature/traditional floor finishes and traditional outdoor pavings. The Architect created the green pond to mimic the mood of ancient lakes of Sri Lanka. In order to illuminate and to bring lightness to the interior, white was used as a background colour.

Further highlighting this existential sense Archt Mohan Wijayaratna, incorporated an existing over-flowing well in the rear garden to his design. A raised circular space encloses the well with steps leading down towards it. There is ample space around the well for bathers. Thus, the whole space was created in such a way to resonate a sense of belonging with nature and traditional Sri Lankan homes. Commenting on his overall design the Architect stated, “I wanted to have that sense of belonging in this building, which imparts an existential sense to the inhabitants – that is you feel like you are a part of this traditional theme.”

The great epic “Ramayana” tells about Dharma, which is the substratum for happy living. Lord Rama and Mother Sita lived an ideal life and showed us the path of virtue and wisdom. If we keep on singing Lord Rama’s glory, our minds will be purified. If we read Lord Rama’s stories we will be inspired to live an honest life.

Mother Sita was kept in Asokavitika in Lanka and she was full of sarrow due to Lord Rama’s separation. Sri Hanumanji came to Lanka and found Mother Sita. Later Lord Rama came to Lanka with his military forces and killed Ravana and got Mother Sita back. This in Brief is Ramayana in Lanka.
