Horton Residence 1

Our Client has homes around the world and this was designed as his Colombo residence. A space where he and his wife can entertain in an official capacity but also where they can relax and feel at home.

The structure was designed by Murad Ismail and the interior design and decoration by Annika Fernando Design (AFD).

Floor finishes in marble, travertine and Burma teak with wall finishes in warm neutrals throughout, with custom moulding details in a unique ceiling design.

Lighting and all fittings along with doors, windows, hardware and accessories designed and sourced by AFD, along with custom made detailing and tile features incorporating our Client’s family emblem.

The furniture was all custom made in Sri Lanka, with AFD designed cabinetry made in Italy and most of the art by leading modern and contemporary local artists. The chandeliers were custom made in India and all soft furnishings were custom designed and commissioned by AFD, all in response to our Client’s brief – for a classic contemporary home that is both elegant and international, but with a distinct touch of local.
