Location / Jember - Indonesia Year / 2019 Program / Retail Complex Size / - Site 8383 SQM/ Building 2500 SQM Client / Argopuro Developer Status / Design Development Structure/ HERSUB Bandung
Argopuro Development is located 3 kilometers from the city center. The designated site sits next to the main gate of Argopuro Real Estate itself, where Main Street of Gajah Mada Road leads to Jember Main Square. Along the Gajah Mada Road, it has shops, commercial, office buildings & public facilities, making this road prominent to travelers coming from Surabaya. This new development of Argopuro Retail Complex is to bring a new image of Retail experience in Jember & also a showcase/ brand image of Argopuro Development itself. Combining Green & Commercial typology is to create flexibility of spatial elements, between nature & built environment. Tree as a place maker also helps in defining a public place with its boundary, as well as the interconnections of mutualism in relationship between nature and people. The stacked building concept provides a frame situation to the urban environment behind the building, which is responding to the existing housing using a visual connection rather than blocking it. The frame appears together with the concept of Pilotis building and flanked by two retails making it compact in spatial scale.
