The greatest challenge in the effort of urban conservation is to determine how changes can fulfill the demand of the present without jeopardizing its unique character and for the sake of urban heritage and identity value. This research will explain the basis of character formulation of the environment as well as determining the right approach for this type of study. By having Melaka City as a case study, the selected approach is exercised to determine the important character of the city. The final findings of the research will list out a few important considerations. Firstly, the character is a result of integration between various urban elements. Thus a study on urban character must include detail analysis of 'elements'and 'qualities' found in the urban environment. Secondly, a study of the important character of the environment should include information based on the visual study as well as qualitative analysis of the city dweller's feedback. Both approaches have their advantages and limitations. Nevertheless, with the integration of both approaches would ensure a more accurate and complete result. Lastly, elements that create the character of environment can be divided into four categories namely physical structure, space, landscape elements and activities. Added to that, the important qualities can be classified into three main aspects that is meanings, activity and physical.
