Abstract

The Jonker Melaka Heritage Zone is a tourism site with its own unique heritage value: a row of old buildings and shop houses with the architectural quality and building layout rich with colonial relics. However, changes in the function of the area have altered the exact nature of the building facade and caused some problems in the building in the area. Therefore, this study was conducted to identify the problems and factors affecting the building façade changes. Field studies, document analyses, literature reviews, and interviews were conducted to collect and analyse research findings. Four main problems that are the causes of the Jonker Heritage Zone building facade transformation were identified: (i) impairment on facade element, (ii) changes and current lifestyle effects, (iii) requirements and effect of consumer's will, and (iv) heritage building conservation approach which is not in accordance with the Guidelines for Heritage Building Conservation. This study contributes to the knowledge and helps local authorities make guidelines in addressing issues pertaining to urban heritage, particularly in preserving the facade of the building in the Jonker Heritage Zone.
