The aim of the project is to resolve the segregation developments between the new town and old town. It was caused by the ad-hoc development which is being deteriorated by piecemeal development in Dungun town. The project begun with site observation and visual assessment, and interviews to recognize the potential and constraint of the study area. Secondary data as supportive resource was obtained from literature review, local municipal’s briefing, technical report, and local plan. Subsequently, the implication of site analysis and synthesis mappings were used to translate as complements conceptual initiative for urban design master plan and appropriate design guidelines. From the design process, it was found that the town is facing with poor legibility and imageability, incompatible land use and building use, lack of connection throughout the circulation linkages and inadequate urban amenities.
