Abandoned and unused old buildings are often seen as a waste of land. One of the ways that old buildings can be reused is to use the adaptive-reuse concept, which is an attempt to reuse an old, unused building into a different function from the original function while maintaining the original building values. The purpose of this research is to understand how the Adaptive Reuse concept is applied in Rumah Atsiri Indonesia. Firstly, the data has been collected through literature survey and field survey. Then, analyzed the elements of Rumah Atsiri Indonesia that can be categorized as adaptive reuse examples and have been investigated in the light of the de?ned factors. At the end, according to the result we can find what kind of work that has been done in Rumah Atsiri Indonesia that makes it as a sample of adaptive reuse projects. Rumah Atsiri that we see today is the result of the revitalization of an old factory building with a touch of modern architecture. Revitalization is carried out while maintaining the authenticity of the design of the building. The contrass of materials makes visitors able to distinguish which of the old buildings and which buildings and new elements are added by looking at the materials used.
