This paper explores the interiorization process in urban spaces by examining various mechanisms of how interior conditions emerge in outside spaces in the context of everyday life in an urban kampung environment in Semarang, Indonesia. It aims to expand the understanding of interiorization within the discussion of urban spaces that tend to see the interior and exterior as separated entities. The study was conducted by tracing the everyday spatial practices to uncover the distinctive strategies applied by urban kampung communities in their everyday use of the spaces. We argue that by comprehending the practice of interiorization that occurs in everyday spatial uses, there is a potential to expand the urban design discourse concerning the quality of space. The study's findings demonstrate various interiorization mechanisms consisting of interior object movement, activities as the generator of interior condition, and collective agreement in establishing the outside interior. These mechanisms suggest the possible improvement of the quality of urban space based on the everyday spatial strategy practiced by the community.
