With a GFA of 175,000sqm, this project aims to become an urban generator, retail landmark and well-integrated destination for Kupang, East Nusa Tenggara, comprising retail, commercial, hospitality, education and healthcare elements. To be built on a contoured site measuring 377m in length, with a vast height difference of 12m between the north and south sides and the architects responded to the challenge by situating the four-storey office and retail podium to the west, ‘stacking’ it to follow the sloping contours of the site. To the east, the ballroom and convention centre as well as the four-storey 600-bed hospital equally respond to sloping contours, with the latter connected to the retail podium through a covered pedestrian walkway. Towards the south, facing the primary road, Jalan El Tari II, is where the eight-storey hotel and five-storey school are found, with the school located above the commercial podium. The façade is inspired by local textures and patterns, and the canopy below the façade acts as a ribbon unifying each component into one integrated development.
