Museum Seni Rupa dan Keramik (formerly: Palais van Justitie) (1870), Jakarta, Indonesia

The building of the Fine Art and Ceramic Museum was completed on January 12, 1870, and was used as the Court of Justice (Dutch: de Raad van Justitie). The building was known as Paleis van Justitie. During the Japanese occupation, the building was used by KNIL and later after the independence of Indonesia, was used as the Indonesian military dormitory and as the logistic warehouse. In 1967, the building was used as the West Jakarta Mayor Office. In 1974, the building was used as an office for the Jakarta Museum and History Department.

Bintaran Church, Yogyakarta, Indonesia

Similar to Kotabaru, Bintaran was an alternative dwelling place for Dutch people who lived in Indonesia. It grew when Loji Kecil area could not accommodate the inhabitants anymore. Physically, the area that you can reach by walking eastwards from Gondomanan crossroad did not grow as fast as Kotabaru. One of the factors was the location that is still close to Loji Kecil so that various facilities could be accessed easily.

Before becoming an Indische dwelling place, Bintaran was known as the place where Ndalem Mandara Giri functioning as the house of Prince Haryo Bintoro, one of Ngayogyakarta Hadiningrat Kingdom descendants. The growth of Bintaran as an Indische dwelling place was predicted to begin in 1930s signed with construction of house, facilities such as church and even prison. Generally, Dutch people who lived in Bintaran were those working as officers and workers at sugar factory.

Similar to other Indische kampongs, when YogYES visited, Bintaran was decorated with buildings in characteristic European-style architecture. Nonetheless, the characteristic of the buildings in Bintaran area is different from the characteristic of the buildings in Loji Kecil or Kotabaru. The yard of the house in Bintaran area is wider, while the verandah is smaller with many pillars; exterior window shutter is in the form of blind and the interior window leaf is decorated with glasses.

Like Indische dwelling place in general, Bintaran also has church facility. Interestingly, Bintaran church was founded based on the idea of Javanese people who did not feel comfortable with the way Dutch people said their prayer. H. van Driessche. SJ, a Dutch-Indonesian person became the construction coordinator of the church that is located at the south end of Bintaran road. The naming of this church that was built in 1931 to become Saint Josef Church related to Father Driessche's prayer to Saint Josef when he felt it difficult to find a location for the church.

Baitturahman Grand Mosque, Banda Aceh, Aceh, Indonesia

The Baiturrahman Grand Mosque is the Aceh Sultanate Mosque, The mosque was designed by an Italian architect and built by the Dutch colonial administration as a token of reconciliation following their destruction of an older mosque during the Aceh Wars. Construction of the mosque commenced in 1879 and was completed in 1881. The initial mosque were smaller and consist of a single dome. Years later the mosque were renovated and expanded by constructing additional wings. The mosque survived the massive 2004 tsunami which destroyed much of the rest of the city of Banda Aceh.

Majapahit Hotel (formerly Oranje Hotel), Surabaya, Indonesia

The Hotel Majapahit is a historic luxury hotel in Surabaya, Indonesia. Located at 65 Jalan Tunjungan, Surabaya. The hotel was founded in 1910 as Hotel Oranje by Lucas Martin Sarkies who commissioned Regent Alfred John Bidwell to design the hotel. The hotel opened on 1 July 1911.
A new art deco style lobby extension was opened in 1936. The opening was celebrated with a royal party attended by Crown Prince Leopold III from Belgium, Princess Astrid from Sweden and Charlie Chapman.

During the Japanese occupation of Indonesia the hotel name was changed to Yamato Hotel and initially was used as a temporary prison camp for Dutch women and children. The hotel was the site of the famous "Insiden Hotel Yamato" (in English "Hotel Yamato incident") on 19 September 1945 in which young Indonesian revolutionaries tore the blue part of the Dutch flag flown in the hotel to change it to the red and white Indonesian flag in the lead up to the Battle of Surabaya. Following this incident it became known as the Hotel Merdeka, or the Liberty Hotel.

In 1946 the Sarkies brothers returned to manage the hotel and changed the name to the Lucas Martin Sarkies Hotel. In 1969 Mantrust Holdings Co., became the new owner and named the hotel after the historic kingdom of Majapahit. It was operated by the Mandarin Oriental group between 1993 and 2006. The hotel was acquired by PT. Sekman Wisata in 2006. Today it is called Hotel Majapahit and still used as a hotel, although most of the interior of the building has been renovated.

It's really interesting how the Indonesian architecture during the Dutch period didn't have that many links to the actual Dutch styles. But I guess Indonesia was a very unique colony, since even the Dutch language was never really imposed there.

Yes most of the Dutch colonial architecture applied was mixed with local adaptation of the architecture, there's mixing of Dutch and Local architecture too that becomes the base of modern Indonesian architecture

Most of the early 16th century architecture were replicas of Netherlands, but as the world gets more modernized, new styles and ideas are flowing which were then applied to the colony. Compared to Curacao, which were rather poorer colony back then, most of the modernist style architecture is less applied and most of the buildings are older than Indonesia's. Most of the buildings in the 18-19th centuries were neo-classical as shown in Daendels and Buitenzorg palace. Art decos is surprisingly popular during the late 19-20th century, when the colony becomes booming with industries, there's also Dutch imperialist architecture too of course such as the one shown in Surabaya's Dejavashce and handelsbank building, or Lawang Sewu in Semarang. Art deco are form of rebelion of style againts royalties back then, which is proven by the distance between the people's power and royalties of the Netherlands, i suppose that's the reason why art deco are surprisingly popular style in the colony.

I suppose the implication of architecture styles in different cities varies greatly, but the rare Dutch art decos are in every cities. Also the population of ethnic Chinese in major commercial centers plays great role, Chinese typical shophouses grews rapidly in these town which tends to be mixing of Chinese-European and locals style architectures.

Languagewise, the Dutch adopted a version of Malay language, which is a popular trading language back then. Also Jakarta/Batavia is populated with non-Javanese and Portuguese mardijiker population back then who spoke Malays dialect, which today influence the Betawi language as in general. Apperently using Dutch language back then is not beneficial, as to communicate with many of the kingdoms requires Malay dialect, thus the language is adopted as the colony's language. There are lots of loan-words however like Handoek, wastafel, bengkel, gratis, kalkun etc etc, mainly words for things that don't exist in the Malay language.

Well, the main difference between Indonesia and similar colonies was the ownership or I should rather say permission to operate. Indionesia, called Dutch East Indies at the time was operated by the Dutch East India Company, which was a business partnership that was not really interested in colonizing the region as much as doing business and gaining profit. And therefore Dutch wasn't implied as the official language until late 19th century when the colony was operated by the state. But, it was typical for the Dutch companies to focus on business rather than organizaing a permanent settlement, for example in New Netherland the Dutch surrendered New Amsterdam without any resistance because most of the settlers didn't even speak Dutch and they couldn't care less whether the colony would be operated by the Dutch or the English, meaning: in case of a siege the settlers wouldn't lift a finger to defend the fort.

Yes even Batavia was simply built as a trading post, when the city was besieged, it was quickly abandoned, but apperently the city's wall managed to hold out for months. They didn't really expected it to become a capital of an actual colony and when the city got bigger the old city was simply left to deteriorate.

There where very interesting plans during the colonial era to move the capital of the Netherlands Indies/Indonesia to Bandung. The first buildings to accommodate the government where built and is now known as Gedung Sate and the buildings left and right of it where built too.


Source: wikipedia

But then the financial crisis in the '20 brought all building to a halt and it has never been resumed, nor has the government moved.

There aren't many plans or maps about this period, this is one I found on the internet years back.

[IMG]http://i62.************/16jopd1.jpg[/IMG]
This is an index of the numbers as far as I have found. Some departments had multiple numbers because various government-owned companies would be housed in this area too.

1,2,3. Departement van Verkeer en Waterstaat (kementerian perhumbungan dan kelautan) Department of Transportation and Water

4. Departement van Justitie (kementerian kehakiman)
Department of Justice

5. Departement van Onderwijs en Eeredienst (kementerian pendidikan dan pengajaran),
Department of Education and Religion

6,10. Departement van Financien (kementerian keuangan)
Department of Finance

7. Departement van Binnenlandsch Bestuur (kementerian dalam negeri)
Department of Internal Affaris

8. Hoge Raad (Mahkamah Agung)
Supreme Court

9,11. Departement van Economische Zaken (kementerian perekonomian)
Department of Economic Affairs

12. Algemeene Secretarie (± sekretaris negara)
Public secretary

13. Volksraad (Dewan Rakat)
Parliament

15. Centrale Regering (Gedung pemerintah pusat)
Central Government building

16. Paleis van de Goeverneur-Generaal (Istana Gubernur Jenderal)
Palace of the Governor General

17, 18, 20, 21. Openbare Gebouwen, bibliotheek, musea (± gedung serba guna, perpustakaan nasional, museum nasional)
Various public buildings, museums, libraries and others later to be decided.


If you look at the map of Bandung nowadays, one sees that only buildings 1,2,3,18 and 19 are built. Bandung on Google maps

interesting... i suppose that would be the Dutch version of Putrajaya or New Delhi, i wonder what it would looked like if they had finished and actually moved the capital to Bandung, although i heard that Batavia oppose this plan even if its finished.

I don't think they finish 3 too, only 2, the no3 is built by the Indonesian at later period.

Indeed it would have been the Dutch version of New Delhi. What I found very surprising was the prominent place of the Volksraad in the new capital. It is well known that the colonial system wasn't democratic at all, but possibly the aspirations would have been to make the regime more representative and democratic.
