We are happy to announced that we have completed our first private villa in Bali. The project is situated at Ungasan hill, near Uluwatu. It was planned to be completed late last year but construction was delayed up to May 2017 due to some changes required by the client at late phase of construction stage. The layout of the villa is divided into three parts on three different levels utilizing the existing site contour: the entrance & service area at street (lowest) level, junior suites for children & guest at mid-level, and two-stories master suites at top of the site. The roof of the junior suites are quite a feature with green landscape to keep the view from the master area to the southern sea unobstructed. (Photo by I Putu Adi Widiantara)

MOTHER MONSTER PLAZA INDONESIA-39

We recently completed brand new restaurant called Mother Monster. Located at the 1st floor of Plaza Indonesia, the restaurant jointly-run by two F&B groups: Commongrounds Jakarta and Biko, which inspire the interior as a merge of those two strong characters. Using the shape of the plot effectively, the space divided into four-parts: open concept area, main dining, bar and alfresco, catching day to night activities inside the mall. The kitchen run by emerging chef Gloria Susindra taking western comfort food with an interesting twist. Please swing by and enjoy the place.

We’re looking back to our first architectural project that was completed back in December 2016. We are glad that the clients has started settling in. The house is located in Permata Hijau that is characterized with big trees surrounding the area and has grown recently in urban sense with nearby high rise residential development and new roads connecting to downtown Jakarta.

We combine those on-site features with the client’s requirements for Feng Shui. Together with very clear ideas on materiality and layout, this project has been a bold foundation to build our body of work that merge function and beauty, making places for both the user and the city.
