Located in Tanjung Duren, West Jakarta across Mall Taman Anggrek (one of the largest shopping centres in Jakarta), the site sits on an open green area.

The brief is to develop a high-end residential development with a unique form, surrounded by greenery. The designers conceptualised the building to have a slender form—the tower is divided into two wings, each with a different height. They also took the surrounding greenery into the project—between the two towers, there are open spaces to allow for sky gardens and landscaping.

The corridors use natural ventilation to reduce the use of air-conditioning. Green terraces are incorporated at every six levels. The majority of the openings of the fa├žade faces north and south to reduce heat gain.

Although the project is conveniently located close to a large shopping mall, the rest of the area is still undeveloped. Bounded by a toll road and a river, part of the challenge is to monitor the neighbouring environment and ensure that the residents’ quality of living would not be compromised.
