High-density settlements in an urban area are always confronted with the lack of space issue. This situation leads to the use of public space-specifically the alley as a circulation space-for exclusive uses of the inhabitants, such as cooking, cleaning, and selling. This study will discuss the strategy of making a public space into individual interior space as an analogy of collecting process by Walter Benjamin, from choosing, bring inside, and be presenting. A qualitative method was conducted to trace the process, and the result of interiorization in public space in which case study was taken is located in Kampung Cikini-Ampiun, Central Jakarta. The study revealed that the process and the result of individual interiorization in public space are no longer separated from each other and yet they are connected by the inhabitant' social relations.
