It produces seeds in the shape of a heart that travel on the sea for many years! Solar panels heat the water and contribute to the electricity while rainwater from the roofs is collected in a tank to water the garden. A compost heap is well under way and a fruit and vegetable garden planned. Designed by a wonderful, award winning Sri Lankan Architect, This is no ordinary house – it is instead a fusion of east and west at its best!More
