Yes they're trees, not revision clouds or craters. I should also have a more detailed plan floating around somewhere, hold on...

a search for "Colombo modernism" turned up with Geoffrey Bawa at the top of the list, and a little more digging lead me to find that this is his own house - Number 11, 33rd Lane, Colombo, Sri Lanka.
There's an interesting story to the house - Bawa was able to gradually purchase adjoining townhomes, and over time reconfigured them into a single entity. I think that for a design that unfolded organically, the plan actually looks extremely well resolved!

It is indeed a stunning project I accidently stumbled upon... socks-studio.com, awesome website.

You can even stay there apparently.

Amazing! Going to have to look more into "tropical modernism"...

very much a raumplan, I didn't get past refreshing my memory on Loos houses ...

Haus Wittgenstein by Paul Engelmann and Ludwig Wittgenstein. Had to look for student / protégé of Adolf Loos. Tricky one...never knew Wittgenstein was into architecture, nice idea by his sister:

Johnson Wax (aka SC Johnson) offices in Mijdrecht, by Maaskant van Dommelen Kroos and Senf.

That boomerang shape hovering over the reflecting pool always reminds me of Niemeyer's work, though!

This is about as far south as you can get, and still be in Europe.

This architect is more famous for his articles, books, and exhibitions.
