Sustainable energy HQ in Jakarta

Indonesia’s state-owned energy firm Pertamina has unveiled plans for a new sustainable corporate headquarters in Jakarta, designed by US-based architecture firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM). 

The project, dubbed Pertamina Energy Tower, will include a peforming arts and exhibition pavilion, a mosque and a central energy plant.

After completion, the office tower, which will rise more than 500 metres above Jakarta, will house 20,000 employees. 
The project, due to be completed in 2020, will also feature public spaces and communal meeting areas, a 2,000-seat auditorium for lectures and peformances, and a public mosque. 

Pertamina Energy Tower will taper towards the top and open up at the crown, exposing a ‘wind funnel’ to tap the winds and increased wind speeds at the upper floors to generate energy for use within the offices. 
Sustainable features of the project include the tower’s curved façade, which will mitigate solar heat gain throughout the year. 
A covered walkway, called the Energy Ribbon, will knit together the constellation of campus programmes and span across land bridges and gardens to create an array of accessible public spaces, SOM said.
