This paper discusses on the process of urban design project based on planning and urban conservation of Master in Urban Design program at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia. The study area is situated at Kampung Jawa in Melaka which is a heritage buffer zone and vitality area that connects to a historical core zone and other adjacent buffer zones. In late 1850s, Kampung Jawa was a vital commercial center with variety of entertainments and cultural activities. Physical development as tangible heritage and social cultural integrity as intangible activities are the key components to delineate the liveliness of this place. Currently, competitive agglomeration of peripheral new commercials has caused a significant decline to Kampung Jawa economy which turned it to a dying and dull place. To revitalise the place, this studio conducted a design methodology constituted of initial understanding on site historical background, literature review study, field visit to verify site issues and interview with locals. The design process continued with design rationales, solutions and recommendation to interpret an urban regeneration strategy to the place. As a result, the design process enabled students to understand urban conservation theories, urban design technique and application on how to regenerate a poor urban place while maintaining its identity of place as a traditional shopping district.
