Inspired by the natural hilly site of Palm Hills City, the buildings are designed to blend in with the existing topography. The agrarian pattern which was used in many cities with hilly sites in Indonesia is an ideal solution for the design, not only because it compliments the nature but also because it is aesthetically beautiful. The buildings follow the natural contour making it look like traditional rice fields in Indonesia, and are oriented to face the beautiful view of the ocean as the main view, increasing the value of the buildings.
