From the architect. The project is function as an executive club for private business usage and symbol for establishment and prestige for the owning company.

Located at the top floor in the their headquarter, office tower, this club will house several functions, such as; dining, tepanyaki bar, drink bar, wine and cigar lounge, with several private meeting rooms.

The requirement came from the client and operator as well, to make this project a distinct atmosphere and services, to make it different from other public club.

They were asking to incorporate the other human sense, in order to enjoy this club, like audio and aromatic sense to be involved as part of design element or concept

Based on the brief and fact above, we are trying to elaborate the “water” concept, in literally and figuratively design translation.

The guest will greeting by an overflow reflecting pond from the elevator lobby to reception area, which juxtaposed by “rain water” glass motive, which will give a tranquil atmosphere and “running water” music, as a background.

From here the eyes will directed, smoothly with the “rain water” background to the bar area, which intersect with another over flow reflecting pond.

Beside the bar area, we put the dining area which have the best view orientation to main road of Jakarta called Rasuna Said.

After dining area the function will flowing seamlessly to tepanyaki bar area (Japanese grill dinner style), and continue to wine and cigar lounge.

At the end we will find the meeting area which can be divide into smaller meeting rooms, thanks to the moveable partition system, which customize with three dimensional, special painted, wooden texture.

The “water” theme also reflected in floor pattern and customize melton glass table, with water drop pattern.

Using the combination of wood, steel and soft furnishing, we try to create a vibrant atmosphere which also refer to dynamic, fluidity and vibrant quality of water element.

this reminds me of the communist restaurants and hotels built in the 80's(I think,or even earlier),extreme corporatism look...I bet the clients will be forced to listen to patriotic songs:))

I think the reputation of material tile appear strongly in far east interior designs , some people like it , but me not

I agree. Nice materials, but I feel they don't add much to an interesting sense of space... perhaps it's the lighting or the bad photography???

have to agree... maybe is bad photography, but I always thought lighting should complement the experience in the space, in these case maybe it does, but the pictures cant show it

The use of materials is great, along with the interior design, but the space quality is boring. If we eliminate all the expensive carpets and materials, we have repetitive spaces. Love the materials but not the spaces designed :D
