Pranala Associates

Bridging the Architecture, Understanding the Function, Bringing the Values

Home / About

Established in 2007,
PRANALA ASSOCIATES is an architecture studio based in Bandung, Indonesia.

Pranala Associates is a joint partnership of two Indonesian architects; Ronald Pallencaoe and Erick Laurentius then, later on, joined by Darius Tanujoyo in 2017. 

Initially, the team focuses on residential projects but has been expanded to commercial ones. With the principle of bridging between the client and architecture, Pranala emphasizes the importance of understanding the surrounding environment, the building’s initial function, and the needs of the client.

Pranala’s Method

Pranala applies a problem-solving perspective that bridges the design with the clients. The design is based on research to get a full picture of surrounding circumstances and envision what the clients may need in the future.

Therefore, Pranala’s design is the result of systematic thoughts. Pranala follows the principle of building function, which then becomes a transformation that unites efficiency and natural aesthetics with regard to the existing situation.

We implement our architectural and design foundation to what we can use to give value to the building and space. After all, the building is more than its architecture but also the users.
