House design will conform to its geographical location, climate, and infrastructure of the users’ living environment. Land price inflation push people who live in urban city to choose tiny house even though it’s in the slums area. Tiny houses are commonly found with bad airflow circulation, because it has only one face to install windows and doors for fresh air access. This condition might cause several issues to the users’ well-being especially in their respiratory system. Do the people in Gang Entim Karasak village Astana Anyar district Bandung city have any chance to improve their well-being only by increasing their house airflow? Is it possible to live healthier in the slums area? What strategies can be used by interior designer to achieve it?
