Pringiers House by Tadao Ando Architects

Japanese architect Tadao Ando has completed a concrete house on the
edge of a cliff in Mirissa, Sri Lanka. Designed for a married couple, with
a glazed study for the husband and an artist’s studio for his wife. A high
window in the studio, which is divided into four by a large steel cross
reminds of the Church of Light Osaka Japan by Tadao Ando. Outdoor
terraces also step between the ground and first floors, while an infinity
pool projects over the living room roof. Furniture throughout the house
is monochrome, including a teak and cardboard table designed by
Shigeru Ban.

“The past influences the present, and the present helps create the future -
I believe the world of architectural imagination exists in such a continuous
flow of time” Tadao Ando
