“A Family” – More than a Office
I never thought my first working experience as an intern would be turnrd out so overwhelming. In memory of 14 weeks, my intern life as a part of ‘RAW’ family,is unforgettable.
6 September 2017 was the first day of working experience with the “Dream Team”. I still remember how everyone cordially welcome me & make myself as a part of ‘RAW’ family on the very first day though I was a foreigner for them.
Besides, if I describe about my working experience I would say the ‘RAW’ people helped me a lot to give the best performance out of myself. Starting from hardcore dedication for work to enjoy every bit of it,I learned all of them from ‘RAW’. They always had given the exposure to improve my concept generation, sketches, fenestration study,plan developing,3D,model making on several projects.

Starting from hardcore dedication for work to enjoy every bit of it,I learned all of them from ‘RAW’. They always had given the exposure to improve my concept generation, sketches, fenestration study,plan developing,3D,model making on several projects.Within this 3 Months I developed my technical skills a lot. My Auto CAD drawings,3D modeling, Photoshop etc skills just got better in every other day.
Furthermore Mr. Realrich inspired and suggested me to learn a new software (ArchiCAD) before I have returned to my country. it’s surprising that just in 20days I learned lot about ArchiCAD and abled to finish two projects drawing using this software. It wouldn’t have been possible for me to learn this in a very short time without the help of all the architects and specially Mr.Erik. I can’t thank enough all the architects to teach all the small techniques and commands. Along with that Site visits from office to few projects also enriched my knowledge about construction details, understanding drawings,site working environment and a lot of things.
On the other hand, the office environment was never like only doing works. It never gave me the chance to get bored. It was always a delightful,fun loving environment not only for me but also for the others intern. Moreover the working environment was very friendly. I have always found the spark of work,fun within it,comfort zone and a supportive vibe while working.
I am very glad that I got a boss like Mr. Realrich who always cherished and inspired my work. In a meeting of one Monday he said, ‘ I don’t treat Trina as an intern, I treat her as a designer of here’. I can’t express how much this words motivated me to the next level. He is a kind of person who never acted like a typical boss rather he chose to be a great advisor. I would say it is the rare virtue and capability of him and his ‘Dream Team’. My words will be less if I start thanking and describing about Septrio,Ali,Miftah,Nida,Icha,Gomes,Regi,Yuli,Tirta,Aga,Bangkit and the other members of ‘RAW’. I am blessed that I met this people who were beside me starting from facing difficulties in works to making me comfortable while feeling homesick.
Last but not least,the learnings,the motivation and the support and love I have taken from ‘RAW’ will always enlighten and cherish my working diary of Indonesia.
This is the ‘ Best Office in the World’ indeed.
