Crossing the threshold: Understanding spatial patterns formed by threshold space in urban contexts

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


This paper explains how human perceives threshold space and its effect on spatial experience in urban contexts in Jakarta. Threshold space provides the key to the transition and connection between areas with different territorial claims. This makes the threshold space an interesting condition to see the correlation between interior and exterior spaces. This paper will focus on the threshold space formed between the commercial area and pedestrian paths in Senopati area, Jakarta. In this paper, we will analyze how threshold space eliminating the sharp division between interior of commercial buildings and exterior spaces (pedestrian paths) in order to present continuous spatial experience between two different spaces in selected urban area. This research is conducted using Boettger's method and its six elements to analyze threshold space. This research found that a different arrangement and completeness of elements in threshold space will produce different spatial patterns.
