TOWNLAND was commissioned to undertake Conceptual and Schematic Landscape Design, Landscape Design Development and Periodic Inspection and Monitoring during the Construction Period for the Allium Arum Hotel in Cepu, Central Java.
The Project is a Business Resort Complex with 3 Star and 4 Star Hotels. It targets Indonesian and international business travellers with interests in the oil and gas sector as Cepu is the commercial centre of the Cepu Block, which is a multi-billion dollar oil and gas exploration concession.
The Resort Complex has been designed to facilitate conventions, exhibitions and training events with a purpose built ballroom and event gardens. The Complex is also suitable for wedding/birthday parties, music concerts, outdoor business events, seminars and workshops.
The landscape has been designed to facilitate these business and event needs in a sophisticated lush tropical garden setting that envelops the colonial architecture. Guests can stroll and jog in the gardens, while having opportunities to meet in several outdoor meeting areas. The ballroom has been designed to open up into the landscape, thereby extending the cocktail and dining ambiance.
A boutique pool is located in the centre of the business resort complex and has a tropical colonial character. Lush tropical gardens envelop the boutique pool and provide privacy to guest rooms at the ground floor level. The other side of the pool is bordered by the terracing landscapes with an outdoor amphitheater, inspired by the indigenous paddy field surrounding the Resort Hotel Complex. To integrate and complete the setting, a walking path traverses the property linking guests to a viewing deck, outdoor dining garden and a natural pond.
