A significant increase in population in Indonesia demands the availability of housing as a basic necessity of the community. The limited land area, especially in Bali, has resulted in very high land prices. Flats as one of the efforts of the government and the private sector are considered as one way to overcome these problems. But unfortunately, the existence of flats which on the one hand overcomes the housing problem, on the other hand, raises a new problem, namely the slum impression of flats caused by flats fail to accommodate the basic activities of residents of flats. One such activity is the activity of laundry. In this study, the Kreneng and Sesetan Police Dormitory Flats were used as research objects. By linking the problem with several theories regarding flats, this article is expected to be able to provide an alternative solution to existing problems. With the fulfilment of the housing needs of the community and still being able to maintain the facade of the building, it is expected that the impression of dirty and slum flats can be overcome. The use of surrounding materials will be able to show a tropical impression and add values to the aesthetics of the building.
