Bottega Ristorante & Dirty Laundy

Bottega Ristorante & Dirty Laundy is one of European concept restaurant and lounge in Jakarta's central business district; SCBD - South Jakarta, Indonesia.This is Bottega Ristorante’s new location, with the addition of Dirty Laundry, the lounge and alcoholic beverages focused place. The concept for this specific  restaurant is 'La Dolce Vita'; meaning the good life, a life of pleasure and simple luxury. It is about enjoying the good things in life and indulging in the things you love. Bottega Ristorante & Dirty Laundry use its 1920s Art Deco style to bring new atmosphere with modern glam.The art deco style itself represents luxury, glamour, exuberance, and faith in social and technological progress. It combines modernist styles, geometric forms with fine craftsmanship and rich materials.

The Art Deco style is adopted in Bottega Ristorante & Dirty Laundry and can be seen in the mixes of materials like gold mosaic, brass and metal plate at the ceiling tiles put into modernistic forms, black steel on the frontage of the building to give an idea of solidity.All the design elements of Bottega Ristorante SCBD and Dirty Laundry represents the art deco touch with a more sleek form of the style, it featured curving forms and smooth, polished surfaces.

The Art deco visual style is used to be the glue that holds local materials and modern tropical design elements together and symbolizes the contemporary European style, considering that Art Deco is a style known for its elegance and functionality but still very chic. Different shades of colors creating an exquisite soft gradation and striking metallic elements, are the two components the designer used in the design of Bottega Ristorante & Dirty Laundry. Strong lines, bright colors, glossy materials and geometrical shapes are not a strange scene in this restaurant. All the elements simply scream to be noticed by people who walk past it.

Bottega Ristorante is divided into two areas; the restaurant and Dirty Laundry, an intimate brandy and cognac -focused lounge adjacent to the restaurant. Bottega Ristorante uses sunrise art deco style ceiling patterns with brass finish. The restaurant is dominated with the color gold, as seen in materials such as gold mosaic, brass detail in every furniture and lamps. People can see the restaurant’s art deco details in the crystal wall lamps in brass finish and gas light lens chandelier in antique brass finish with marble diffuser; that is famous in that era.

The T-shaped site of Bottega Ristorante’s new location makes the restaurant have a different edge in its own way. It grows smaller on the outside and bigger inside, that it separates both areas itself. This is what becomes the starting point of the distribution of the two main areas; the dining area that is Bottega Ristorante and the lounge area introduced as Dirty Laundry. The dining area consists of alfresco area, semi outdoor area and indoor area. Entering the premises, guests are welcomed by the alfresco area with beautiful vertical garden on the back of a long bench. The main point of the alfresco dining area is the brass reception table. Continuing to the main entrance, the guests enter the foyer area dominated with oak wood panels wall and ceiling. This corridor is the transition area between the alfresco, semi outdoor and dining area. On the right, is the semi outdoor area, where guests can see and feel like they’re in the outdoor area, but still in the indoor area. This area resembles the previous design of Bottega Ristorante in the old location, with the long and round bench, peacock mosaic table and mirrors to mimic the windows.

The ceiling of the dining area uses the 1920 art deco brass ceiling tiles and the floor uses herringbone patterned oak hardwood floor combines with patterned hexagonal tiles.The Dining area itself is divided into three areas; side dining, VIP dining and bar dining area. The long sofa bench at the center of the dining area separates the side dining and bar dining area. The center point of the dining area is the floral mosaic on the back of the bar. On the other side, lies the VIP dining, standing exclusively separated on its own corner right between two half circle ivory travertine wall and the iconic peacock mosaic of Bottega Ristorante at the middle. The bar and the wine shelves become the background of the whole dining area. The black marble top table combined with brass rivets looks really grand even from the front of the restaurant. On the right, there is a gold mirror partition that separates Bottega Ristorante and Dirty Laundry. The two areas can be opened as one if the partition is fully folded.

Dirty Laundry is a lounge and bar in Bottega Ristorante. The interior concept of dirty laundry still has a connection in the art deco style just like the restaurant, but dirty laundry uses darker colors and copper materials, while Bottega Ristorante uses brass materials. The wood panels are deeper, a walnut color; the wood used on the floor is ebony color; and the 1920s art deco style ceiling tiles have copper finishing. Wine rack with wood paneling is given copper detail and rivets, crystal wall lamps on the wood panels as accent, and tealight chandelier brass lamps with art deco design..

Dirty Laundry is divided into two areas, the lounge and the bar. The focal point of Dirty laundry is the bar with copper accents everywhere you see. The guests are guided to the bar upon entering the lounge.  The bar is dominated with copper and walnut wood panels. Dirty laundry also uses 1920 art deco ceiling tiles, but in copper. The floor uses black and white hexagonal mosaic tiles, mixed with ebony hardwood floor. The walls are accented with patterned ceramic tiles with copper plate. The sofa’s color is mint green to light up the otherwise rather dark atmosphere.

Even though the two can stand on their own, with different design, the designer connects Bottega Ristorante and Dirty Laundry in several aspects of the design. The symmetry designs between Dirty Laundry and Bottega Ristorante's ceiling connects two areas together. When the restaurant and lounge opens, the door partition slides into one side and the two areas mixed like they are one right from the start.Linearly, sofa booths in both areas and the floor patterns becomes one; they can only be differentiated by the darker colors in one of the area. In the end, Bottega Ristorante and Dirty Laundry have their own unique character, but still fit well together when they are combined.

ZHUMA Senayan City

Zhuma is a Japanese restaurant, located at one of the most prestigious shopping malls in Jakarta, Indonesia. The idea and concept behind Zhuma is a fully traditional Japanese restaurant with Japanese culture and philosophy behind the design concept. The restaurant uses traditional Japanese emblems or what the Japanese called “Kamon” as one of the main traditional elements throughout the restaurant. “Kamon” is a unique culture and tradition you can find only in Japan. A “Kamon” is used to represent a unique identity of a family and can be applied to clothings, weapons and even furnitures.

The interior design of Zhuma is based on the traditional aspects of Japan, emphasizing on the natural aspects. A zen garden in Japan and the concept of Yin and Yang are the inspirations for the design. The designer wants to paint a picture of traditional Japan, using the interior design as the brush, giving the people inside it tranquility and peace of mind. The three dominating elements in the design is the dark colored wood, the greyish stone and the plants. The dark colored wood represents the warm side while the stone represents the cold side of nature, creating balance and harmony, also adding the plants to symbolize the lives living inside nature.

Zhuma is divided into three main areas; the sushi bar, the main dining area and the outdoor dining area. People can enter the restaurant through the two entrance; the one through the sushi bar and the one through the outdoor dining. People can already see the “Kamon” from the outside, used as the lit background for the sushi bar and as partitions separating the main dining area and the outside dining area. While not common, the center point and the starting point of the restaurant is actually not the entrance but the red kimono with sakura emblems all over it at the far corner of the restaurant.

The Kimono at the back of the main dining represents spring that spreads to the other areas, just like a sakura tree when the flowers are beginning to bloom and later the petals begin to fall. The wind blows, creating ripples and spreading the petals to the other areas. The levelling of the wooden ceiling represent the rippling water and the sakura prints on the table represents the fallen petals, just like a beautiful picturesque view of a calm pond in the middle of spring in Japan with cool wind blowing. The sushi bar is pictured as the garden at the side of the pond, with the big stone at the cashier table and the bonsais near the main dining area. The Outdoor dining area symbolizes the sakura garden and the koi pond. The sakura from the red kimono spreads to the outside, the darker and calm area of the main dining area shifts into the outdoor area where it is brighter and and full of life, representing the season change from spring to the warmer summer. The transition is made very subtle, using several openings so that the change is not too drastic. The end of the sakura petals from the pond and the garden is at the vip dining room at the end of the outdoor dining area. The table is embellished with prints of koi fishes and sakura petals, symbolizing the little koi pond.

The three areas together paints a beautiful zen garden, with sakura petals falling and flowing freely following the ripples of the water. Sakura and koi fish are used to further accentuate the value of Japanese culture in which sakura is a symbol of happiness, calmness and serenity while koi fish represents the dark and light side of life, just like Yin and Yang.

Bottega Ristorante


Located at Mega Kuningan, The Golden Triangle of Jakarta's central Business District. Bottega Ristorante is one of the newest european concept restaurant with modern touch in the capital of Indonesia. The chosen concept for this particular project is "La Dolce Vita", meaning the good life, a mixing of posh and classy while still taking industrial design as the glue between the two. The restaurant itself is a freestanding building at Danamon Bank Tower (Menara Bank Danamon) area. Taking into considerations that the area is full of office towers and same looking buildings, Bottega Ristorante is built to be a breath of fresh air and truly remind people to live "La Dolce Vita".

First step into the restaurant, steel, copper, brass , wood , terrazzo and mosaic tiles are the six main elements dominating the first sight we see. People can choose to dine in the alfresco area where they permit smoking, or the indoor area with no smoking allowed. The main dining area and the bar are located in the indoor area, while the outdoor area consists of communal and alfresco dining, surrounded by the landscape of the garden. When we walk through the stairs, on the left,we can see the alfresco dining with communal table with peacock feather mosaic tiles table top and hanging filament bulbs as the center point. The long linear layout of the alfresco dining area is ended by the round brass sofa, which separates the alfresco dining area with the powder room and the restrooms. On the right is the building with the main dining area inside. The shape of the building is also quite narrow, hence the linear setting seating area. Dominating the main dining area are the blue peacock feather floor pattern and the copper kitchen's facade at the end of the main dining area. An elegant bar area on the right, and the big window on the left with round copper sofa separating the bar dining area and main dining area. The center point of the main dining area is the many hanging filament bulbs mixed with half bowl silver bulbs which can be dimmed during the night, giving off more romantic atmosphere.

The restaurant uses some italian mosaic tiles (ex. Sicis) on the wall, floor and tables. The patterns used are peacock and flower patterns. Copper is also applied on the ceiling, sofa,kitchen's facade, windows screens and communal table. Materials used outdoor are herringbone patterned wood, granite, cobalt stone and terrazzo with sleek brass inlay as the classy detail. The alfresco dining area is sheltered by glass canopy, while the building's facade is covered by unpolished steel. Combination of steel, copper, brass, wood, terrazzo and mosaic tiles is the designer's way to mix industrial design with posh materials, blending modern and classy all at once. There are versatility in the use of materials, not only in the variety, but also the surface finishing of the materials. Some of the materials, like brass and copper is fully polished, while the steel, wood, and terrazzo are left just the way they are, natural and unfinished
