About Shehan

Shehan De Silva: Shehan, or ‘Sk’ as he is affectionately known, has steadily cultivated a habit of furthering sustainable practices through each of his professional and personal endeavours. Whether it is in his role consulting for the Biosfera foundation, which formulates sustainable design-based solutions for agriculture and construction, the hosting of an immersive ‘Farm-to-table’ food experience involving organically sourced produce, or his keen interest in heirloom varieties of rice in Sri Lanka, there is a conservation-oriented tinge to most of his activities. The various experiences that he hosts and curates, the local characters and artisans who form their basis, and the discerning guests whose lives our wishes to enrich, allow him to actively promote sustainable behaviour in a practical and concrete manner. His Sinhalese and Burgher (Eurasian) heritage allows him to offer some unique perspectives on the multicultural aspect of the experiences’ offering.
