Ascot Nook is a studio apartment nestled amidst the verdant garden of Architect Tilak Samarawickrema's residence. Ideal for a couple or a single guest, it has a kitchenette and bathroom. Bathed in natural light, the studio opens out to a small garden where guests can sit outside.


The Nook is designed to create a sense of fluidity between indoor and outdoor spaces. While the windows by the entrance overlook a lush green lawn, on the garden-facing side, two timber doors open out to an outdoor space. In the bathroom, natural light pours in through the skylight above the shower, while providing complete privacy.

The kitchenette is equipped with a fridge as well as pots and pans for light cooking. Utensils and cutlery are also provided. There is a small dining table facing the garden.

The Nook is a work-friendly space, ideal for scholars. It contains a long mahogany writing table and lamp.


The apartment is attached to the main house, but it is completely independent with a separate entrance and walkway. Guests have access to wifi. Laundry services are provided for a nominal fee of Rs. 750 per load. For long-term guests, we offer weekly cleaning and fresh linen.

We appreciated that the airbnb apartment was very nice, clean, physically separate from the main house and located on a quiet residential lane.

We had a lovely stay at Tilak's Ascot Nook. When I previously lived in Sri Lanka, Ascot Avenue was one of my favorite residential lanes with old trees, a dead end, and interesting houses. I remember meeting Tilak's in his studio in the early 2000's. It was such a treat to stay in his home. The Nook had everything we needed: comfortable bed, AC and fan options, a refrigerator, kettle for tea in the mornings, and more. The small garden afforded beautiful light filtering through trees in the morning and birds. The sun-lit shower with amazing hot water was very nice! There was a small sitting table and a beautiful writing desk, too. The location is perfect for exploring Colombo - a great neighborhood with restaurants and cafes nearby. The lane is off a main road, so tuk-tuks are plentiful. And it is an opportunity to meet one of Sri Lanka's architect-artists!

I've just returned from a two week stay in Sri Lanka, during which time I spent about a week in Colombo staying at Ascot Nook. I couldn't recommend it highly enough. The Nook itself is stylish, spacious and comfortable, with fast wifi and a big desk - perfect if you need to get any work done during your stay. Ascot Avenue itself is a tranquil little street, lined with beautiful trees. I felt an enormous sense of peace waking up here! Yet despite this serenity, it's right in the heart of Colombo - there are plenty of shops, cafes and restaurants nearby, and all the major sights are just a short Tuk Tuk ride away. As for Tilak - what an amazing host. He booked a taxi to pick me up at the airport, and welcomed me with a beautiful freshly made passion fruit juice. And during the course of my stay, he took me to a local film festival, invited me into his beautiful home for lunch, and took the time to show me the work in his studio. I will long remember the warmth, kindness and hospitality shown by him and his wife! Tilak has wonderfully decorated the Nook and surrounding gardens with his works - magnificent sculptures, tapestries and line drawings - making it a must visit for any art lover. I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in Colombo!

With my studies, I had the opportunity to work as an intern for one month in colombo, Sri lanka. It was important for me to find safe and healthy accommodation as I was travelling alone. For this purpose, i decided to reserve an accommodation with Air Bnb. I reserved the appartment that Tilak proposed as "Ascot Nook". After longs hours of travel, Tilak and his wife gave me a very warm welcome. He started with the presentation of the appartment and a welcoming fruit juice. I also had the chance to have dinner with them in a restaurent where they made me discover vegetarian indian cuisine. It was delicious and a really good first impression and immersion in to the country! In the days that passed, Tilak and his wife were always concerned about every little details of my needs. For my travel to work every morning, he reserved a tuk tuk that came looking for me at Ascot Avenue. I really appreciated this gesture. On some evenings, after coming back from work, i had the chance to talk alot with Tilak; on his projects, his job, that he shared with love. I indeed was astonished by his work exhibited all around his house as well as in my appartment. He really is talented. I would like to thank these two amazing persons who had beautiful meetings with me and who really shared their culture with me. I recommend all of you this address. Also good for your long or small stays in sri lanka! Anne-Sophie BARITEAU,

We love to explore culture and art whenever we travel. We came across Tilak's book Design in Sri Lanka on Pinterest. It immediately captured our imagination. Then we saw his line art. It revealed a playful, naughty world filled with energy and emotions. We wanted to meet this artist so badly! But our honeymoon had just two days left. The only way to meet the artist was to stay at his house. :-) Tilak and his wife Sriyanthi welcomed us with warmth and kindness. They cared so much about us having a perfect stay. Their house is just a tip of the iceberg of Tilak's mind and artistic accomplishments. Wire sculptures on the wall are a large scale representation of his line work on paper. We saw the original tapestry featured on the cover of his design book. He and his wife introduced us to the best restaurants and artisanal shops in Colombo. Their advice blew away the local city magazine’s top picks. Though we exhausted ourselves exploring the city in Colombo's scorching heat, we couldn't stop reading Tilak's books at night. His ten years in Italy witnessed the peak of modern Italian art, design and fashion. He lived in the center of it all. He worked with and befriended many accomplished architects, artists and designers. His own works received critical acclaim from Milan to New York. The MOMA Design Shop in New York sold his tapestries for eight years. But Tilak is inherently Sri Lankan. And it’s obvious he never forgot who he is and where he is from. Since returning home in the 80’s, he has led multiple cultural movements reviving and advancing traditional Sri Lankan art, design and craftmanship. The results are delightful and breathtaking. He and his wife also introduced us to Sri Lankan ayurvedic medicine. We have both suffered from knee injuries for decades and Western medicine has been ineffective. Their doctor arrived on a motorcycle, masked like a ninja. He applied herbal medicine on our legs, and we could feel an improvement in less than a day. It was incredible. We were early adopters of Aribnb. We’ve been lucky to meet many gracious hosts. But staying at Tilak’s leafy garden house was more than pleasant. It transformed us. Love, Jing and Shannon
