ISORAS CIKARANG is a service apartment in the suburbs of Jakarta, Indonesia, run by a hotel operator. The operator, for whom this project is their first ever apartment, requested the design ensure that life was the same no matter what the sky looked like that day. 。
Target users of this apartment are those with longer stays on business trips from Japan. When we visited the area before our presentation, we experienced the humid environment unique to South East Asia and felt it would be inappropriate to simply recreate a Japanese interior. So we focused on what kind of house we would like to live in if we lived in Indonesia.
We made a conscious choice to combine the Indonesia materials of teak, mahogany, Palimanan sandstone, Indonesian marble, etc. to create an accommodation that Japanese would want to stay at and invite their friends to. Also, because it is a service apartment run by a hotel operator, we created somewhat of a hotel-like atmosphere, which comes across as similar to a modern resort space.
