BANDUNG-West Java Governor Ridwan Kamil plans to rearrange some rooms and courtyard of Gedung Sate, but will not change the main structure because it is a heritage building.
According to Emil, his nickname, after he visited several corners of Gedung Sate on his first day of office, there were a number of rooms and redundant pages that had to be used.
"I have an eye as an architect, here a lot of redundant spaces are actually better used by the community as in the backyard, as long as it does not interfere with employee work activities," explained Emil in Gedung Sate, Friday (7/9/18).
As a cultural heritage building and become a tourist destination, the plan for structuring the Gedung Sate will be a tourist-friendly concept.

He wants the building that was built in 1920 does not have a haunted and formal impression.
"Don't be haunted, don't look very formal like a state palace," he said.
Emil described the arrangement in several corners of Gedung Sate as in the backyard that would be made in the courtyard. On the page can later be used to receive state guests.
"For example, in the backyard it will be made like a court. The city of Bandung is cool, so it will be able to eat dinner there, it can also be used to receive state guests," he explained.
In its 100-day program, Emil will prioritize coordination between regions, then reform public services and that will soon be launched in this first week is the Jabar Quick Response program.
