UK-based architect Benoy has won an international competition to create plans for the Indonesian Untar University's new campus.

The company will develop the masterplan vision for the new 139ha scheme, which is known as Royal Taruma City in Jakarta. The development will cover a diverse programme consisting of a lifestyle centre, offices, residential units, and health facilities.

A business park and convention centre with an accompanying hotel will also form part of the new development.

In addition, the company will provide the architectural design for the new lifestyle centre.

Benoy's Singapore studio director and head Terence Seah said: “We are honoured to be developing the future vision for Untar University in Jakarta.

“This development is significant in both its scale and what it will deliver to the city. Our design brings two key strategies to the forefront, a pedestrian-centric approach and an interconnected, multi-dimensional network of green spaces across the campus.”
