Geoffrey Bawa is Sri Lanka's most well-known and renowned architect, known for his unique "tropical modernism" style, and in his last project he created a boutique hotel on Sri Lanka's south coast that follows this distinct style.

The hotel is called 'The Last House' and was created with local materials in a style that reflects the country's tropical climate and the designs associated with that, along with a more modern twist. This balance gives residents a unique place to stay that balances architecture with its tropical, jungle surroundings. The project was Geoffrey Bawa's last as he passed away before its construction, but his influence and its design is apparent throughout.

This tropical modernist hotel provides a comforting and tranquil environment for its guests.
