The Dharmawangsa precinct is near a plethora of amenities and lifestyle options. From exclusive shopping destinations to various restaurants and bars, as well as vital institutions for healthcare and learning, everything you need is within easy reach, ensuring a comfortable and convenient lifestyle.

Savyavasa is the result of a collaboration between Indonesia’s JSI Group and Hong Kong-based Swire Properties. Its commitment to sustainability sets this development apart, as evidenced by its adherence to the prestigious Green Mark Gold sustainability award. This award recognises buildings that demonstrate excellent environmental performance and sustainable design, appealing to the responsible buyer. 

Architectural Expertise

Savyavasa’s sustainable architectural design is the fruit of a stimulating collaboration between top-tier talent and consultants, including internationally acclaimed design firms Yabu Pushelberg and Richardson Sadeki, as well as esteemed Asian studios like Singapore-based SCDA Architects and Bali-based Intaran Design, among others.

First and foremost, the Singapore-based architecture firm SCDA designed three towers housing 402 units in two- to four-bedroom configurations. “Savyavasa, in many ways, is a good illustration of the design principles of SCDA. It captures the fundamentals of design, which is space and order. The development’s indulgent lifestyle is defined through its exceptional amenities, expansive open spaces, and a strong emphasis on privacy.” Soo K. Chan, Founding Principal and Design Director of SCDA said, “The site at Savyavasa is full of natural trees, so the strategy of retaining nature and enhancing nature is essential.”

Inspired by Dutch buildings in the neighbourhood, SCDA’s team, with their architectural vision and core design philosophy, deployed innovative passive strategies to create a healthy, comfortable indoor-outdoor living space at Savyavasa. The three towers were strategically oriented to avoid the most intense sunlight, while vertical screens and double-glazed glass prevent direct sunlight and enhance energy efficiency. The facade’s architectural fins give the residential towers a unique appearance while lowering heat gain. These design features ensure a comfortable living environment and significantly reduce the building’s environmental impact, showcasing Savyavasa’s commitment to sustainability. 

The main architecture, Tower I, has a sophisticated interlocking system that produces bright and airy double-height living and dining rooms. The bedrooms and the open-plan living room are connected by large balconies that maximise views of the surrounding vegetation and skyline while seamlessly fusing indoor and outdoor spaces. Imagined as “sculptures in the park”, these magnificent buildings are encircled by lush, sculpted gardens brimming with life.

Elevated Lifestyle

Currently, it’s the only high-rise residential complex in Jakarta constructed to the Green Mark Gold standard, which aims to provide a living environment that is both enviable and harmonious with the environment. Today’s homebuyers are pursuing a modern property where nature’s peace and serenity complement the life at home.

This is where well-known Asian studios, like Bali-based Intaran Design, a landscape design business, used their Midas Touch to transform the land into a rich landscape of flora and foliage. Some 300 trees and replanted ones pepper the sylvan environment that embraces the property. Beyond its lush vegetation, Intaran Design, while working with the architect, had to demonstrate its commitment to environmental conservation with features like composting and water recycling facilities and smart air quality monitoring devices installed around the property. In addition, soil moisture sensors maintain optimal plant health, resulting in a setting that genuinely accentuates the splendour of the natural world.

What makes Dharmawangsa truly unique is its ability to blend and weave the past and present into a lively ambience that is distinctive to South Jakarta. From the preserved historical buildings to the modern shopping centres, the area offers a unique blend of old-world charm and contemporary convenience.

The true attraction of living in the surrounding area of Dharmawangsa is how quickly one can escape into nature. You can enjoy the sylvan landscapes, such as the 1km jogging track. Fitness buffs can benefit from the well-equipped gym or nearby sports centres, such as the private Bimansena Club, Union Yoga, and Body Works The Pilates Studio, to name a few.

After a rigorous workout, slow down the pace of life by zipping to the nearby cafes in Dharmawangsa. Indulge in the exquisite brews served at Six Ounces, Second Floor, and Kula Coffee House, all just a leisurely less than 10-minute walk away. If massages are what you crave after a workout, then the Hammam Spa at Savyavasa can lend a helping hand to sore muscles and body aches. The Dharmawangsa area caters to singles or couples pursuing their dreams and families seeking an ideal environment. With proximity to renowned educational institutions like Mentari Intercultural School and healthcare facilities such as Brawijaya Women & Children Hospital, it offers comprehensive support for family needs. Additionally, Kidzania at Pacific Place Mall provides children with engaging weekend activities for learning and growth.

Amazing Lifestyle Pursuits

Shopping and eating moments are plenty in Dharmawangsa – from casual eateries to high-end restaurants – you’ll be spoiled for choice. Shopaholics can browse high-quality items at Dharmawangsa Square and discover unique artisanal items at Tulisan Boutique. There’s more shopping to be enjoyed at Plaza Senayan, Senayan City and Pacific Place, which are a stone’s throw away. Here, you can have your pick at local crafts or international brands such as Hermes, Louis Vuitton, Rolex, or Cartier, to name a few.
