Bringing Sustainable Design To The Heart Of Jakarta

Gabi Orsi and Abimantra Pradhana of Jakarta-based practice AGo Architecture

Founded in 2018, Jakarta-based architecture firm, AGo Architects take sustainable living to advanced levels as it seeks out how to maximise space and materials for healthy living.

Jakarta-based practice, AGo Architecture, is passionate about sustainable design. Founded in 2018, the company believes in not just sustainable buildings, but also creating a healthy life for their clients by looking holistically at the complete design or project.

“In recent years, we have observed the new trends and practices in architecture that take into account its impact on the environment and the society it lives in,” says AGo Architecture co-founder Osrithalita Gabriela (Gabi Osri). “This holistic approach ensures that architecture is not merely a physical experience, but rather an aesthetic interpretation of harmonic relationship between human and its physical environment.”

Joining Gabi is Abimantra Pradhana – the two architects have a combined experience of almost 25 years in the design industry. After both completed a Bachelor of Architecture at Trisakti University, Jakarta, Abimantra went on to receive a Master of Urban Design from the National University of Singapore.

Gabi continued her studies with a Master of Science in Building Performance and Sustainability at NUS, going on to use her sustainability knowledge directly at the university. As a principal member, she contributed to thermal comfort standards efforts in naturally ventilated buildings in Singapore. “These were then adopted in Singapore’s sustainable design building code for GreenMark certification,” says the architect.

 

Throughout Abimantra’s career, he has focused on creating and teaching architecture that reflects a nourishing approach.

 

Today, Gabi channels her experience into the firm’s sustainable technical know-how, while Abimantra brings his personal experiences with healthy lifestyles to the company. Throughout Abimantra’s career, he has focused on creating and teaching architecture that reflects a nourishing approach. This is evident through his work at the active lifestyle hub SANA Studio in Jakarta – which he co-founded and designed.

Bringing their experiences in the two fields, at the heart of the firm is the careful curation of materials, efficient design, and sustainability. To ensure these philosophies, AGo Architects focuses on a connection with the project and client; they have to speak the same language and imagine the same outcomes. “With these principles, our architecture anticipates the challenges of the future – socially, environmentally, and economically,” says Gabi Osri.

AGo’s values have been applied to projects such as the 3500mm house in Jakarta, a compact home that maximises passive and sustainability factors by capturing natural sunlight and using efficient ‘M-system’ foam paneling material.

Looking forward, the eco-minded team wants to bring more positive impacts to society, the environment, and their clients. In their master plan are city homes that run efficiently, and more public spaces that encourage a sustainable mind frame ­– for the population on Jakarta and the universal implications.
