This building is good for photoshoot for instagram or relaxing because the architecture is made by Dutch in the Colonial era in the past.

Designed by Dutch architect Charles Prosper Wolff Schoemaker as main resident of businessman Willem Beretty. Schoemaker take art deco seriously in building Isola. Combining cruise boat-like design and classic Renaissance-era garden. Isola now functioned as rectorate building for Universitas Pendidikan Indonesia (Indonesian Education University).
