South Quarter is a three-tower office complex in South Jakarta. Located on over seven hectares of land, the complex is one of the largest in the city, while still maintaining ample open space for tenants to enjoy.
The towers were designed to resemble the traditional Indonesian rattan basket, which resulted in a distinctive and elegant louver façade. The façade is not only architecturally beautiful, but also helps shield the buildings from the sun, to reduce energy use.
External shading devices, energy-saving lighting, water-efficient plumbing fixtures, grey and blackwater treatment and recycling systems, and a rainwater harvesting system were installed to improve the resource efficiency of the towers.
South Quarter was developed by Intiland, who has built some of the most prestigious and eco-friendly luxury buildings in Indonesia. The project was designed by Tom Wright of WKK Architects.
South Quarter has received final EDGE certification from the Green Building Council Indonesia.
Predicted Savings of EDGE Certification
Less Embodied Energy in Materials
Reflective paint/tiles and insulation for the roof, external shading devices, higher thermal performance glass, and energy-saving lighting in internal spaces.
Dual-flush water closets, low-flow faucets in bathrooms, water-efficient urinals and faucets for kitchen sinks, grey and blackwater treatment and recycling systems, and a rainwater harvesting system.
In-situ reinforced concrete for the floor, micro concrete tiles on steel rafters for the roof, in-situ reinforced internal and external walls, and ceramic tile flooring.
*Part of the energy efficiency percentage may be associated with virtual energy for comfort depending on the presence of heating and cooling systems. Note that virtual energy does not contribute savings to utility bills.
