The project theme resonates with the location and objectives, but the architectural design can be enhanced for better integration with nature and water. Consider exploring a shape that reflects the relationship with water, such as incorporating curvilinear structures or wave-like patterns. It is also worth considering an integrated approach that allows nature and architecture to coexist seamlessly, breaking away from segregated zones. By blurring the boundaries and incorporating green spaces or interior atriums, a harmonious relationship between nature and architecture can be fostered. Additionally, showcasing the project's concept through the building mass, whether through distinctive design elements or iconic structures, would create a visually impactful representation of its theme, further strengthening the overall concept.
The site is located in the heart of Moratuwa at the edge of the Bolgoda Lake.The project enhances the communities socio economic well being through water transportation & economical involvement to the community. Moreover the project creates ba gateway into Moratuwa & to create a linkage between Moratuwa city center & the Bolgoda Lake through social activities.
The main objective of the deign is to create a simple Unique design that incorporate nature through out the building foam,approaching site with a sensitive manner to utilie the form in order to capture the panoramic views and the natural breeze of the surrounding context. The design would promote water transportation & energize other water front activities,to improve socio economic well being in the city & the connecton between Moratuwa city center and Blgoda Lake and to incorpertae nature & context maximizing the green belt of the Bolgoda Edge.
