UK-based architecture, urbanism and design practice Broadway Malyan has revealed the designs of a mixed-use tower in central Jakarta, Indonesia.
The mixed-used project, 7Point8, will feature two towers built in Jakarta’s central business district. The tallest tower will be 298m-high and both will be connected by a podium structure.
The 7Point8 project will offer office, retail, commercial, residential and public spaces that will be directly connected to the newly developed Setiabudi Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) station.
A joint venture between land owners and Jakarta-based developers, including Karya Cipta Group, selected Broadway Malyan to provide the concept and schematic design of the towers.
Inspired by the alun-alun or town squares of Javanse cities, Broadway designed the towers with square or rectangular walled exteriors and an open-air courtyard. They will be positioned at right angles to each other to achieve an east-west perspective.
This arrangement results in centralisation of the proposed public space and creates room for the development of an internal courtyard garden.
Broadway Malyan director Ian Simpson said: "This high-profile scheme is drawing on the diverse skills, expertise and experience of our global design experts, led by our Singapore-based team, which is partnering closely with the client to deliver a world-class landmark development."
Broadway Malyan is currently working on other projects in Indonesia, including the Bhumyamka Sekawan’s 11.7ha Cilandak Bisnis Square (CIBIS) project in Jakarta.
