Ministry of Trade Building

Jakarta, Indonesia
Government of the Republic of Indonesia Departemen Perdagangan
Project 2006 – 2008

Located near Merdeka Place in Jakarta, this 16-storey office building for the Government of Indonesia takes the shape of a series of interesting solid and transparent boxes.

The longitudinal office accommodation of the building was orientated to minimize exposure to the eastern and western sun.

A large auditorium, exhibition hall and library are open to public access.  This complex project required tight security and the relocation of numerous trade agencies from other buildings.
