The building is divided into two blocks and connected with a podium in order to maximize the space for room’s configuration and view as well as avoiding the bulkiness of the mass if it is designed as one single block. The gap between two blocks is used as a space to bring the sunlight into rooms and allows for natural ventilation.

This hotel is designed to accustom with the local lifestyle.Places such as cafes, coffee shops and restaurants have become favorite places for the people of Pontianak. Huge crowd of people hanging out in kopitiam – traditional coffee shop- along the roadside is a typical sight to be seen every night in the city.To accommodate such a lifestyle, two public spaces are injected into the building on different levels;semi outdoor cafe on the first floor and semi-outdoor cafe area with swimming pool and playground on the fourth floor. The lobby is in the first floor which there is a semi outdoor cafe and dining area facing the street in order to create a connection with the street.The pool is put in the middle horizontal part of the building in order to shade it from the direct sunlight of Equator thus it has become favorite space for visitors. The void on top of it brings sky view to this pool area without getting direct sunlight and allows for natural cross air ventilation.

The facade for the ballroom gets its inspiration from diamond as West Borneo is famous for the mining. It is designed and constructed with 98 steel frames and 900 pieces of triangular alumunium panels which some parts can shine at night or during the event in the ballroom. Beside the aesthetic part, the light on the
triangular panel help to add light on the street. With the illuminated facade and the new easily accessible public space, Golden Tulip Hotel has became the catalyst in creating the lively street and places for people.
