Since city rapid development and urbanization, it is very common to see more high-rise building dominate the urban landscape. Urbanization shows the transition of people living lifestyle transformed from a horizontal community into a vertical community. Therefore, the experiences in a ‘Kampung’ such as socialise with the local community are slowly faded away as people lives in the capsule-like environment. As building build taller, the design promotes residents to be disconnected from street life and further decrease accessibility. The sociable living is important as it can strengthen a community bond and benefit human health. The idea of incorporate sociable architecture element into a high-rise in no longer a new idea where there are high-rise designs that integrate communal space in it. But the implemented approaches just fulfill the requirement for the attraction of home buyers, instead of value the importance of resident’s social interaction and their social pattern and behaviour. The research adopts interviews, questionnaires, and observation as the methodology for data collection. The data are collected from Stulang Laut Town. From the findings, there is certain characteristic had been identified that can be adopted into sociable architecture approach such as, gastronomy activities, housing typology, and communal spaces. Based on findings, it suggested a few architectural methods that can be incorporate into the future highrise residential design, such as insert gastronomy building program, skipped lift system, vertical zoning for high-rise unit, courtyard, and plaza design, etc.
