In a very compact housing in Jakarta, the open space becomes very narrow. That physical environment prevents the air flow which is a predominant condition in hot humid climate. One way to solve the problems is by controlling the micro climate in the form of arranging the building and arranging vegetation. This case study on high density housing aimed at : (1) find ing out t he correlation between building density toward thermal comfort and heat island intensity. (2) gett ing the information about physical factor that contributes to the relationship. The data on thermal comfort and heat island intensity are gathered through direct measurements by using L utron scale on temperature, humidity, distance among the buildings and high building density . The data on building density are gathered through comparing the ratio between the open space and built space. The result o f this study shows that there is a strong correlation between building density and heat isl a nd intensity. However, high building density does not provide direct contribution to thermal comfort. Different building height affects thermal comfort in that area which confirms what Johansson,Erik; Emmanuel, Robinson (2006), argument on thermal comfort .
