Global architectural firm, Woods Bagot, is celebrating the completion of a new architectural statement piece for Jakarta's skyline, Telkom Landmark Tower. Located in Jakarta's central business district, the tower will be the new headquarters for Indonesia's largest telecommunications company. 

Woods Bagot designed three buildings for the project; a six-storey podium, a 20-storey office building (Tower 1), and a 48-storey office building (Tower 2). The firm also refurbished and integrated an existing 16-storey building into the overall development. Tower 2 is the focal point of the development – the structure includes a podium that links the three buildings, with shared amenities including a rooftop mosque, hospitality services, retail space and an auditorium. 

"The campus we have developed for Telkom successfully integrates the physical qualities and social aspirations of the idealised campus in a vertical application,” said Woods Bagot Principal and Director for North America, Patrick Daly. “Several elements reinforce this cohesive culture and connected campus: the podium bridge, open green space, multi-floor atria, and cultural references."

References to traditional local crafts contribute to the sense of comfort and familiarity. The façade combines two building skins – a contemporary curtain wall glazing with attached metal fins coupled with an ornate metal screen inspired by the batik patterns found in Indonesian textiles. These performative sun-shading facades will reduce heat gain by 30 percent, filter sunlight and cast intricate shadows throughout the main public spaces.

“Several elements reinforce this cohesive culture and connected campus: the podium bridge, open green space, multi-floor atria, and cultural references."
