The Courtyard

Location: CBD Balikpapan, East Borneo, Indonesia
Type: Apartment, Shopping Centre


The Courtyard is designed to maximize the view from each room of the apartment. To achieve that, the building’s mass is designed in response to the site’s contour and open to the public space in the centre. The courtyard consists of 4 stories of shopping centre at the lower levels, 5 stories of apartment units that are connected to open public area on the 5th floor.

By proposing this plan we could obtain 230 units of apartment with maximum view and natural lighting.
