An Educational Hub and Vibrant Commercial Centre
TOWNLAND was commissioned by PT. Belaputera Intiland to undertake a Master Layout Plan study for 58.20 ha of land at the centre of Kota Baru Parahyangan, West Java. The main objective was to develop a Master Layout Plan for a Town Centre as a new generator for further development in the District. The future development must convey Kota Baru Parahyangan’s image as an education hub as well as a vibrant commercial centre that serves greater Bandung and beyond.
The primary design strategy is to create a strong identity for the Town Centre with unique yet clear structure of urban fabric with four major integrated development catalysts that include: a Creative Hub; a Lifestyle Centre; a Living and Leisure Precinct; and a Creative Industry Village. The Creative Hub, as the centre of higher education, is the main development generator, whilst the Lifestyle Centre and Living and Leisure Precinct create a vibrant ambiance to the development. In addition, the Creative Industry Village has a unique function that responds to emerging creative industries in Bandung by providing artists with an inspiring environment.
The arrangement of the Master Layout Plan has an organic form facilitating smooth and flowing movement of people and activities between buildings, along pedestrian links, and within open spaces, thereby reflecting the endless stream of energy and creativity that the Development has to offer. Furthermore, the structure incorporates two iconic natural landmarks in West Java (Mount Tangkuban Perahu and Lake Saguling) as the major visual axis to signify appreciation of nature.
