Alamanda Hotel is strategically located in the heart of South Jakarta, Indonesia. Jakarta, the capital and largest city in Indonesia, is one of the most populous metropolis in the world. The southern part of the city is now home to large upscale shopping centers, offices, and affluent residential areas.
This 5-star business hotel will be the first luxury hotel in the area. Currently, the first two floors are commercial stores and the upper floors are office spaces. On average, each floor is 14,000 sqft; the whole building is approximately 350,000 sqft. Redesigning this tower as a hotel will be a great opportunity in this particular neighborhood.
The design will follow modern architectural style, with simple and clean lines. There will be much less minute decorative elements. Instead, the attractiveness will originate from harmonious shapes and high-quality materials used. The color scheme consists of neutral colors such as beige, brown, grey, and cream; each space will have its own contrast color. The building will also be a model of sustainability (in a city where it is still considered an afterthought), by means of abundant natural lighting during the day and sustainable materials such as bamboo, LED lights, reclaimed wood, etc.
As soon as customers first enter, the elegance of the lobby will captivate their mind right away. 18 feet ceiling height creates a dramatic feeling within the space. The lobby lounge is located in the middle of the space, with transparent dividers to keep the space open and offer unobstructed view to the reception, wide staircase and bar.
Polished marble floor and curtain wall augment the sense of light. Carpet and wood panel at the lobby lounge bring warmth and comfort.
Alamanda Executive Suites are particularly well-suited to business travelers. Minimalist design, incredible views and outstanding array of amenities create a perfect place for business gatherings.
These simple-modern rooms are lightly decorated, yet exude elegance. Warm color palette combines with abundant natural lighting from the oversized windows to make the room aesthetically pleasing. The room is designed with sustainability principles in mind; other than the natural lighting from the windows, all furniture are made of recyclable materials.
The multi-panel light fixture on the ceiling is custom made and dimmable, giving customers the option to set the mood of the room.
Allysum Bar and Lounge, located on the first floor of Alamanda Hotel, is designed to be a place to escape from work stresses. The minimalist design style brings the lounge feel, while the modern part will create a fresh image and experience. It complements the surrounding structure, such as the curtain wall, and develops continuity with the swimming pool located just outside the bar. Combined with the spaciousness created by the dramatic high ceiling, dining at Allysum will be an exceptional experience.
