The Branz Mega Kuningan is a residential project located in a prime area of Jakarta. It consists of one 45-storey apartment and one 33-storey condotel tower combined with an 11-storey podium and a 1-level basement. The project encompasses a total development area of 120,000 square metres.
Envisioned by Tokyu Land and designed by Shimizu Corporation, the project aspires to bring in a unique urban development that incorporates advanced Japanese building technology and infuses the harmonious combination of a Tokyo/Jakarta living experience. The development features various upscale amenities, including a sky garden and pool on top of the podium.
Davy Sukamta & Partners was appointed as the structural engineer, working together with Shimizu Corporation to complete the design of the project. The structural system for the building is a reinforced concrete core wall with seismic moment frames, known for its desirable performance in regions vulnerable to high seismic activity.
The podium was strategically employed to structurally link the two towers. This creates a slender and efficient core wall configuration while minimising lateral drift in the towers and provides more comfort for the occupants. A thorough coordination process was undertaken to tune the structural systems for desirable performance, without forgoing the architectural design.
