Sequis Tower

Sequis Tower

With its thoughtful urban design, skyline-defining form, and focus on sustainability, the Sequis Tower is a new paradigm for Indonesia’s burgeoning capital.

The form and massing of the tower, driven by contextual analysis and a focus on efficiency, serves as a response to Jakarta’s conventional all-glass rectilinear architecture. Taking inspiration from the local banyan tree, the tower rises organically from the ground as a series of finely scaled elements. In contrast to the standard model in Jakarta, where traffic and parking govern pedestrian connectivity, the tower design foregrounds the importance of the ground level pedestrian experience by pulling on-site traffic circulation below-grade and elevating the parking. Thus, the ground plane of the site is reserved for green space and pedestrian movement.

The tower consists of four bundled and deflected “super-tubes,” nested and offset from one another. This massing generates unique office types and create greater structural stability in an active seismic zone. At the top of the tower, the tubes vary in height to form multiple grand sky-gardens overlooking the city, while at the podium they extend outward to support larger office floors and increase pedestrian porosity through the site.

Slated to be the first LEED Platinum building in Indonesia, the project integrates a variety of sustainable design strategies. A gradated array of fins and panels on the tower’s curtain wall addresses solar radiation with optimized gradations. The design couples this envelope strategy with high-efficiency building systems and locally-sourced, recycled materials to create a comprehensive, energy-efficient building.
