Atelier Cosmas Gozali's stadium is also an ecological sustainable building as the building is uplifted from the ground level.

Two reasons justify this strategy of uplifting the building from the ground level: (1) the building will not deteriorate the existing environment; (2) then it will create an open range of views towards the lake and the park.

The envelope of the building is made of metal material. These are irregularly arranged with the aim of displaying the dynamic tongues of flame, and effecting reflections of the light.

Atelier Cosmas Gozali also opts for traditional symbolic elements. Megamendung (or raincloud) batik motif in the façade, Minang-house arch of the main bridge of the stadium's reception the allusion to the headdresses of ondel-ondel (the giant puppet mascots of traditional Betawi festivals) in the binding ring of the stadium are the traditional symbolic elements applied to bring out the building's design.
