Chairul Amal Septono

There are not many interior designers and architects who are actively involved in the two largest of all design organisations in Indonesia—the Indonesian Interior Designers Association (Himpunan Desainer Interior Indonesia, HDII) and the Indonesian Institute of Architects (Ikatan Arsitek Indonesia, IAI).

One such personality is Ir. Chairul Amal Septono, MTp, IAI, HDII. Since graduating with an architecture degree from the University of Jakarta and a master’s degree in urban and regional planning from Gadjah Mada University, Chairul has been involved in IAI Jakarta since 2001 and currently serves as the chairman of HDII Jakarta (since 2015). He is also a member of the Indonesian Construction and Occupational Safety Experts Association (Asosiasi Ahli Keselamatan dan Kesehatan Kerja Konstruksi Indonesia), Network Twentyone International, and Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KADIN Indonesia).

His involvement in many organisations in various fields did not make him neglect his long-standing architecture and interior practices. In addition to completing the project at Lambung Mangkurat University, Banjarmasin, South Kalimantan, the principal and founder of unionEQUIL and CArchitect is currently involved in the design project of a smart living hostel in Jatinangor, West Java.
