Abstract

Hidden informal eating places in between Safuan Tower and Sunway Tower along Jalan Ampang seem to be one of the urban void public spaces which are not fully utilized since the space is not visible.The image of many pocket spaces that serve as well as functioning as informal eating places have not much been explored. these informal eating places are often hidden, characterless, and unorganised.the architectural image that is embeded or portrayed within such setting are also temporal. However this places are lively and offer a great places with the diverse of social activities of people . They are normally known to the locals within their own neighbourhood. they become the place for people to gather, and be regarded as the urban marker or third place in the city fabric. More so, not much attention is given to its image that suits to its locality. Dining experience at these informal eating places can be more diversed. could also be educational and suits to the needs of the surrounding community. The environment could be enhanced especially when taking account the uniqueness of the site when fronting the riverside. By analysing the pattern of visual connection of people and their movement and behavioural activities will help inform designers and authority to understand the importance and sensitivity of the context of its locality. subsequently, a better architectural image that are visible, see through and accessible to greater public could help raise its potential and enhance the social, economic and environmental of the development of the place, hence sustainable in line towards the vision of Greener KL in 2020. Furthermore, the social activities happened in the studied site prove that the space is liveable but yet not really welcoming. By studying the type of activities, occupation of spaces and density of people predict by space syntax allowing this kind of urban intervention need new link/spine to attract more user and flourish.
