A house with a mind-blowing architecture and a beautifully landscaped garden is like a match made in heaven. This was what the Bawas were known for.

The two brothers, Geoffrey and Bevis dominated the two fields with much passion that their legacy still lives on to date. With attractions such as The Brief, Lunuganga Estate and several other locations inspired by their creativity, one can observe the enthusiasm they have had to give a different experience for the people. During a recent visit to Beruwala the Lanka Woman team went on a brief tour at ‘The Brief’, the home and garden of Bevis Bawa. Currently owned by Bevis’s former Assistant, Manager and Geoffrey’s landscape designer, Dooland De Silva, the premises is frequented with local and foreign tourists all year round.
