As an emerging architecture studio, Rafael Miranti Architects emphasizes on modern composition complemented with material study and exploration of local workmanship that is suitable for each different ideas.
They constantly seek various extensive approaches that allow the designs and users to interact with Jakarta’s tropical climate and dynamic urban conditions. So far, the studio has designed the exterior of Honu, Student Centre for University of Indonesia, Magna Hotel Fatmawati, The Slow Restaurant and the Conwood House Competition winner ‘Rumah Kepryak’. All things considered, the studio believes in the clarity of ideas executed with rigorous planning and design to construct good architecture.
