Abstract

This study aims to draw attention to the architecture of kampung housing, as an attempt to identify those circumstances under which people live in the context of limited space. A kampung housing is a dense non-formally planned cluster of residential dwellings in urban area, which are packed together in a contiguous area created by a large number of migrants. We tried to determine the way in which the spaces are arranged into a place to live, which implies a certain dynamic of survivability among the kampung's inhabitants. The research methodology is conducted with questionnaire surveys, interviews, and detailed observations of daily life cycles, dwelling elements, and the pattern of domestic space arrangements. The study revealed that the characteristics of particular high-density settings have been adapted so that kampung inhabitants devised a particular set of rules and behavioral strategies to cope and support themselves in crowded situations.
