Canopy garden celebrates its visible condition by being as open and transparent as possible. The building was nothing more than just a double multi-axial pigmented concrete plate, floating above the garden. A very light feeling produced from shell stressed structure creates a series of seating areas on the roof that also shapes the space on the ground floor as the extension of the garden itself.
Built as a commercial garden in the middle of a compact residential that has an extremely high thermal environment of Bekasi (35 Celsius), Tanatap Canopy Garden, as many other experimental Tanatap commercial garden design, use this particular location to prove a point that regardless the macro environment challenge, a passive low energy commercial design would still be achievable and profitable in the tropical-developing country.
RAD+ar has been optimized for a bespoke experimental tropical experience. The inside-outside concept is integrated by a series of shades of floating concrete that cast a different ambiance every hour, achieved by seamlessly extending the roof-ceiling elements touching the existing tree canopies, invites for a unique experience for visitors to dance among the tropical almond canopies. The open layout creates an efficient interior unit flow and interaction of the bar area, communal table, and circulations.
