The pair of towers in Thamrin Nine are vertical cities within themselves, integrating public and private spaces throughout, as part of the development located centrally in Jakarta’s historic neighborhood.
The two towers stand above a layer of high-rise buildings, making them significant additions to the city’s skyline, and play off the existing structure in Thamrin Nine, growing the cohesive project. The towers increase in total height, reinforcing the size and significance of the development. This change in elevation is seen throughout the development, from the low-level retail podium that connects the two towers, to four total observation decks that cantilever off the glass structures. The 5-star hotel in tower two hosts a private rooftop pool and the project continues beneath the towers through access to the MRT. The project represents a gateway into the city’s Thamrin district, reinforced by the illuminated observation decks of the two towers.
The mixed-use development enhances the urban environment of the existing city. Tower one integrates nature through the use of a green-wall available for residents to enjoy, as well as greenery on the rooftops and along the public promenade. The project prioritizes views to the North, South, and East, minimizing impact from Jakarta’s western geography, to manage internal temperature so to be most efficient in energy use. Natural lighting is utilized through skylight in the central atrium of the hotel and the towers’ curtain wall is a bold design of repetitive lines that offer shade to the interiors.
