The quality of RAW’s work has been recognised by over 16 design awards, including finalist of Indonesian Institute of Architect Jakarta Award (IAI) and winning several open and limited competitions. In all our work we aim to address the challenge of the specific situation, creating creative innovation which push the boundary in architectural design solution. In the design process we continue to push the building system, building envelope, building philosophy, breaking the foundation of the core problem which come up with the best solution specifically in each situation.

Our method of working is we believe in workshop between clients, engineers, and specific consultants from beginning of the project through completion of project. The approach is not conventional and sometime involves the use of the mock up models to help test and develop the proposed design concepts. We also believe that the design process is complex and requires complete understanding of creative solution, core of the problem, and specific situation which defines each situation.
