Located in the center of a growing global city, this landmark development functions as a microcosm of Jakarta. Designed as a city within the city, it marries an office tower and accompanying Four Seasons Hotel with dining, event spaces and retail spaces.
Incorporating Jakarta’s tropical environment
Lush gardens with covered informal gathering spaces are scattered throughout the towers. Landscaped sky terraces populate the top of each step of the office tower. The façade of the hotel tower is cut out to reveal an outdoor dining terrace with further green spaces at the ground and rooftop levels. Water elements are infused throughout the landscape, providing a cooling and soothing effect.
“Capital Place is a remarkable project that represents our bold vision for the city of Jakarta.”
Creating movement in stillness
The office tower façade is a double-glazed unitized curtain wall that features undulating anodized aluminum vertical sunshades arranged in a staggered pattern. This placement gives the tower a distinguished wavy texture when viewed diagonally. The office tower massing steps back four times, creating a distinctive silhouette visible from both directions of Jakarta’s main arteries. The hotel tower, a rectangular extrusion in form, is set further back on the site to provide distance from the main road.
Bright, comfortable spaces inspired by Indonesian tradition
Following Indonesian architectural tradition, indoor and outdoor space are integrated, flooding interiors with natural light and ventilation while keeping occupants protected from the extremes of Jakarta’s tropical climate. Semi-outdoor spaces, including covered sidewalk cafes and generous roof terraces at banquet hall and office levels, provide shade from sun and protection from rain.
