Integrated into the top levels of the Ciputra World Jakarta Mall, a commercial landmark located at the heart of the city’s Golden Triangle, Ciputra Artpreneur is one of Jakarta’s latest and most significant cultural venues. As the first international-standard venue in Indonesia, the scheme delivers spaces of performance and art facilities including a theatre, flexible and permanent exhibition galleries, a museum, and multifunctional rooms.
The oval shape of the theatre allows for a perfect viewing angle, giving the best visual experience for the audience. A proscenium style auditorium with seating over two levels, the space accommodates 865 seats at stalls level and 365 in the balcony.
Benoy is creating a truly unique visual for the space. The Theatre is brought to life with faceted walls and ceiling detailing, designed with a striking geometric interior. The distinctive form was created with soft cell panels covered by stretch fabric and further accentuated with illuminated strips.
Flexible interchanging walls allow the space to accommodate either major exhibitions or a series of smaller exhibitions simultaneously. An acoustic curtain sitting behind the soft-cell panels ensures full sound isolation for the performance venue. A three-storey glass wall runs along one side offering glimpses of the city center, taking advantage of the views over Jakarta. At each end of the gallery space, two striking spiral staircases help lead guests to the Theatre above, allowing the Main Gallery to host pre- and post-show receptions.
Throughout the interiors and Benoy’s design, highly expressive and richly colorful style has been thoughtfully integrated; further ensuring the venue becomes a truly integral part of Jakarta’s cultural landscape.
