Over the next 19 years, Hidajat oversaw the design and construction of some of Indonesia's most notable commercial properties including the DEA Tower (1 and 2), Danamon Tower, Talavera Tower, the Mangga Dua Square, The Ritz Carlton Bintan, the Central Bank of Indonesia, Mandarin Oriental Jakarta, and the $1 billion Philip Morris corporate campus, Jakarta Greenfield project. Over the past three decades, he has undertaken a wide range of work, including urban master planning, airports, civic and cultural buildings, offices, residences, hotels and resorts.
