RAISING FLOOR ELEVATION OF HOUSES AS EFFORT TO IMPROVE THE QUALITY HOUSING IN FLOOD PRONE SETTLEMENT Case Study : Muara Angke Settlement, Nort Jakarta
Raising the floor elevation of houses is coastal settlement of North Jakarta has been a phenomenon recently to avoid flooding. Flood has become a threat in the northern part of Jakarta due to sea level rise, land subsidence, and extreme rainfall as impacts of climate changes. Muara Angke is a delta in North Jakarta sur rounded by Java Sea in the north, Asin River in the east, and Adem River in the west, so that several times of flooding inundate this settlement. To overcome flooding, communities in the settlement have been doing housing adjustment by rising the elevation of ground floor . The objective of this research is to identify floor elevation techniques and designs, and innovations of house designs related to floor rising. This research was conducted with quantitative and qualitative methods to collect data from purposive respondents through observations and interviews. The results of this research shows that the rising floor elevation method has been contributing innovation to avoid flood and has no impact towards the environment. This innovation is not costly and still allowing occupants to do their activities while flooding, especially those who are with low income.
