Where the Indian Ocean meets the Jungle… Resplendent Ceylon’s latest creation is Wild Coast Tented Lodge, adjacent to the world famous Yala National Park, renowned for its dense leopard population. This spectacular luxury tented camp is situated in a stunning location where the jungle meets a rugged, empty beach, overlooking the Indian Ocean. Wild Coast Lodge’s unique design, masterminded by Nomadic Resorts, a consortium of Dutch, English and Sri Lankan designers, sees the man-made structures blending seamlessly into the surrounding landscape thanks to the use of carefully selected natural materials.

For this project Vinc Math was responsible for developing the construction technique for the restaurant and welcome reception pavilions including a bamboo membrane and shingle system. In addition, he built and trained a team of local craftsmen to build the structures to completion.
