The buildings are propped up with a skeletal structure that shades the interior. Then, the corridors that line each floor act as a buffer zone between the offices and the sun, keeping the former nice and cool while at the same time ushering in a ton of light. These systems also ensure that the building need not rely on energy-hungry lighting or cooling systems.

An office building that also incorporates entertainment and retail facilities, the Agung Sedayu Center is designed to provide a space for coastal visitors to view the mangrove forest. But it’s only for pedestrians and cyclists. No cars allowed! This will ensure the area’s long term viability. It’s a beautiful design that strikes a necessary balance between fostering both development and biodiversity.
