Global design and consulting practice Woods Bagot is celebrating the completion of a multi-faceted headquarters for Indonesia's largest telecommunications services company. Telkom Landmark Tower adds density to Jakarta's central business district with a three-building scheme anchored by a new 48-storey office building soaring to a 219-metre apex.

In addition to the central tower, Woods Bagot designed a six-storey podium and a 20-storey office building. An existing 16-storey building has also been revitalized and integrated into the development, which has become a new focal point of the dense Jakarta skyline.

"The campus we have developed for Telkom successfully integrates the physical qualities and social aspirations of the idealized 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."

The podium provides circulation between the three buildings and contains a number of amenities, including retail space, a fitness centre, an auditorium, and a rooftop mosque. The tower facade references local crafts, with a contemporary curtain wall glazing and metal fins accented by a metal screen inspired by batik patterns found in Indonesian textiles. On top of adding texture to the envelope, the sunshades have the practical benefit of reducing heat gain by 30 percent, filtering sunlight, and casting shadows throughout the main public spaces.
