ASOKA// That this development will be a landmark in Jakarta, with an international standard of design and accommodation to ensure that it will comprise the most luxurious hotel in Indonesia was the criteria from which our design concept has evolved. We consider the site to be open in character with the dual carriageway of Jalan Thamrin and Jalan Jendran Sudirman offering clear and continuous approach views of varies length from the north and south. Thus the environment of the site justifies our concept of a free standing edifice which neither lines up nor connects with any adjoining structure The development has been treated as a sculpture standing as it does on a large roundabout on the main Jakarta thoroughfare with the important approach views offered at this important junction. Therefore the design does not have a main elevation; instead its vigorous juxtaposed composition will have equally exciting and unexpected presentation from all angles of views. Elevated in tented double glassed curtain walling with bush-hammered concrete circulation cores the project combines a luxury hotel with prestigious office accommodation and comprehensive shopping facilities together with generous parking and service areas. The accommodation contained within the podium consist of the main lobby/reception are with coffe shop and restaurant facilities at first storey. Second storey has a Chinese and Japanese restaurant and a grand ballroom/banqueting area with adjoining function rooms all of wich can be used for convention purposes.
