Architecture practice Broadway Malyan has unveiled designs for a high-rise development in central Jakarta, Indonesia.
The project, called 7Point8 will feature two towers with the tallest standing 298m in the city’s central business district.
Broadway Malyan was appointed by Jakarta developers including Karya Cipta Group to deliver the concept and schematic design.
In response to the initial brief, the practice re-oriented the proposed development and included two towers connected by a podium structure. The towers are positioned at right angles to each other to match the client’s aspiration that the building should achieve an east-west perspective.
The design is inspired by what is known as “alun-alun” – the town squares of local cities – where social, economic and leisure activities take place and buildings feature a square or rectangular walled exterior and a courtyard open to the sky.
7Point8 will combine office, retail, commercial, residential and public space and contribute to the rejuvenation of Jakarta’s central business district.
Ian Simpson, director at Broadway Malyan, 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.”
