The Study Centre is situated in an idyllic setting on the banks of the picturesque Diyawanna Lake about 12 kilometers from Colombo. The U-shaped brick building with a tall roof and well ventilated rooms was designed by Mr. Tilak Piyaratne, a renowned architect in Sri Lanka and remains cool even in the mid-day heat of Colombo. The mangroves on either side of the building provide the sylvan surroundings essential for a place of retreat.
The Study Centre consists of a main hall cum audio-visual room, library, seven guest rooms (single) with ensuite bathrooms, a kitchen, a dining hall and caretaker's quarters.
