Balikpapan is one of the most rapid developing city in Indonesia at the moment. It has many natural resources such as oil and gas. Thus, many big international companies set up their offices and businesses in Balikpapan. Because there are many newcomers and expatriates, the city needs to provide more facilities for them. This Citywalk project tried to capture the demands and opportunities for lifestyle and its market. This project is located in Balikpapan’s new development area with its challenging contour site condition.
The design sought a new space concept for people to hang-out and shopping while providing a public space that enable people to enjoy it. It has outdoor sitting area covers with ‘big umbrellas’ and greenery surrounding.
