Nothing is better than expecting something to last forever. So as to Top One Headquarters, which is intended as a long lasting building. Thus it needs to be a familiar part of the neighborhood with a certain approach to the surrounding. Furthermore, as the Headquarter of a major company in Indonesia, Top One Headquarters needs to envision the board to set up development and strategy.
The project is located along Garuda Street, which comprises business centres, that drives one of the busiest street in Jakarta. The site is 5600 sqm and has uniqueness in its form. According to the city rule, the area closest to the street is allowed for high-rise, and the back of site is purposed for low-rise building. Based on these contexts, we are inspired to explore the design by upholding the green area of the site. The upheld green area is furtherly projected to the building height allowed and consistently goes from low rise to high rise area. We call it as the green belt.
The key idea of the green belt is to keep the presence of green environment encloses the working space. The working space itself is composed by boxes that refer to each level of high rise building and being connected by that green belt. Working within the green environment with comfortable ambience can be reached by aranging the space with voids, openings, and vegetations. So at a closer look, it results high possibilities to reach green environment with lawn, trees, park enjoyment of pathway, bench and foliages, right from the working desk. Even more, the board and executives can honestly hold discussion and meeting in the roof garden or lawn.Location: Jakarta, Indonesia
