Krrish Square by Edouard François

Three large towers are to be built in the Sri Lankan capital of Columbo, part of a regeneration of the city’s waterfront. ‘Krrish Square’, a scheme proposed by French architect Edouard François, seeks to establish the 450,000 square meter project around the history and context of the site. The diverse program includes offices, apartments, a hotel, a cinema and various retail outlets.

At the base of the towers, ‘Transworks House’, a historic British colonial building is transformed into a commercial hub, becoming the entrance of the new development and redefining the street front. Behind the existing red brick elevation, a luxury mall occupies the lower ten storeys of the complex. Façades are covered with lush vegetation referencing the region’s ceylon tea fields. The vast complex will offer views of the region’s coastline.

Two expansive glazed bridges connect the three structures, providing the development with additional floor space. The first bridge, oriented towards the port, contains recreational facilities at a height of 300 meters, featuring a swimming pool, dining areas and an external garden. The second bridge, positioned 400 meters above ground, at the pinnacle of the hotel tower, serves as the lobby for the apartments, spa and fitness center, offering views of the beaches and ocean below. A subterranean multiplex cinema is located under the vast complex, and fully automated parking facilities can also be found on-site.
