Kosenda Hotel, Jakarta

Artist: Sanchia T. Hamidjaja & Triyadi Guntur Wiratmo

The owner being a native Betawi. Kosenda is a portrait of Jakarta’s history. Both the outdoor and indoor lobby depict modern-day Jakarta in Sanchia Hamijaya’s monochrome pop art. The outdoor lobby displays differing murals of the same scene according to the weather or rainy. The wallpapers of the corridors of all six floors tell the story of old Batavia in collages of old documents by Triyadi Guntur Wiratmo whereas the pillars are wrapped in colonial-era advertisements. As of now, Triyadi is adding bits of three-dimensional accents on the wallpapers. The Building of Jakarta’s history continues.
