Singosari Lifestyle Center is a multi-story commercial building, surrounded by low-rise, high-density urban area located at the heart of Semarang city. The brief is to design a mixed-use development which is able to accommodate various retail functions and housing units. The ground floor total area is 540 square meters, so the client hopes that the site can be optimized.  In response to this client brief and design problem, the ground level is mostly used as parking area with some building services aside. The 4-story F&B retails sit in the front of the building, followed by a story consist multiple apartment units lies above. On the rooftop level, a swimming pool is placed alongside the bar which provides magnificent Semarang city view.

The approach is to make every single story unique by providing spacious balcony in each F&B retail story, as part to break the monotonous space of each optimized floor plan. It helps to create more interesting spaces in this commercial building. The openings on the façade are the effort to promote the visibility of its F&B retails inside. Complemented by various material and compelling lighting design, the building is intended to be lifestyle center which creates interesting experience for the building users.
