Design Approach

Our concept is based on abstract interpretation of the “Sirih Junjung”; a quid of betel consisting of betel (sirih) leaves, betel nut (pinang) tobacco and gambir combined and folded neatly together and held in place by a clove. The folded leaves also symbolizes and represent unity. Furthermore, the offering of a sirih quid set (Sirih Junjung) carries a welcoming message to the receiver, the giver symbolically presents himself humbly before the receiver.

In our design, we have incorporated 2 observation deck, one at 20 metres and the other at 80 meters. This is to allow tourists to view the administrative center at different levels.
