Being located near Poncol train station, the building tries to echo the context that it stood on. The two hotel-floors are the first things visible from the distance. Hence, the elongated shape of the facade and the punch windows are inspired from the typical train car’s windows in Indonesia. The curtain wall facade of the office right below the hotel floor is chosen to eccantuate the different function the top two floors have and also to give an illusion of the floating train car. So when people approach the building, they will be reminded of the context.
