Location / Cimahi- Indonesia Year / 2019 Program / Warehouse & Gallery Size / 7212 SQM Client / PT. Bratatex Status / Schematic Design
Bratatex's existing factory is located in Cimahi industrial district where textile is one of the dominating sectors besides pharmacy, manufacture, and building material. This industrial area has its charm to a larger scale in West Java, beside the attractiveness for people to work here, but continuing as a growth index economy for Kota Cimahi itself. This characteristic has a potential for the whole complex as a core of various industries in the West Java Region. The total land of +/- 7213.4 sqm has to be filled with new programs as requested such as Gallery & Workshop with a better circulation system on top of existing programs. The Existing program has to be improved as well as the size, quality and circulation process for a new development to the whole plot. Because of the unattractive surrounding, the design’s main intention is to create a building which is inward-oriented. The orientation manifested by placing most of the opening inside rather than outside. As viewed from the whole building, the opening functioned as a green area. This area appears as a thermal buffer from the natural light and air circulation. The room interacts one another through voids among them, to confirm its orientation.
