Four Seasons Hotel Jakarta has opened at an all-new location; a centrepiece 20-story tower situated within the award-winning Capital Place development in the heart of Jakarta’s commerce, entertainment and financial district. The international collaboration between architect César Pelli, interior designer Alexandra Champalimaud and landscape architect Bill Bensley has delivered a sublime, modern design masterpiece in the dynamic, fast-paced metropolis of Jakarta.
The light-filled modern building containing Four Seasons Hotel Jakarta represents a new landmark of contemporary architecture by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects. The development is inspired by the Indonesian principles of transparency, connecting interior and exterior and figuratively representing the waves flowing around the Indonesian archipelago. Large, light-filled spaces and a focus on design detail create an ultra-modern, fabulously chic environment for the new Four Seasons Hotel Jakarta.
The interior spaces of the Hotel have been curated by renowned, New York-based interior designer Alexandra Champalimaud. A member of the Interior Design Hall of Fame, Champalimaud has created a journey of discovery as guests venture from restaurants and bars, to the library, society salons and drawing rooms; creating something in between a museum and a modern theatre experience in each of the venues; maintaining a delicate balance of history and momentousness, coupled with modernity, celebration and surprise.
Within Four Seasons Hotel Jakarta’s highly urban environment, internationally acclaimed landscape architect Bill Bensley has created lush, thoughtful outdoor spaces that seamlessly integrate with the opulent interiors and are destined to be forever talked about. The fifth-floor hosts the outdoor swimming pool and pool bar, both a visual surprise featuring 19th Century French art-deco architectural details. Rich paving and pool tiling, hanging daybeds, intricate trellis seating areas, bespoke pool chaises, carved stone fire torches and deco bronze sculptures feature, whilst bold textured plants including Date Palms, large leaf Alocasias and fragrant Frangipanis compliment the audacious architectural elements.
It is Champalimaud’s remarkable interiors that truly define Four Seasons Hotel Jakarta as a paragon of opulent hotel luxury design. Fusing modern Indonesian artwork, murals of old Batavia, French classical lines, hand painted gold leaf ceilings in various different shades, decorative brass doors, glittering Eastern European chandeliers and traditional Javanese stonework and sculptures, Champalimaud manages to make each venue dramatically distinct, whilst combining them to make a modern spectacle of Indonesian social life, a powerful backdrop and stage for the well-connected, fashionable and powerful to see and be seen.
