Abstract: This paper presents the role of building adaptation on sustainability in Indonesia. This paper was encouraged by the population growth in the community that pressures the availability of new building stocks to meet community needs. One of the steps to fulfill these needs can be adapting the existing building into a function following today's needs. Many building owners select building adaptation to provide new facilities as it has numerous advantages over new buildings. One of which is calculated as a step that fulfills the sustainability aspect. In addition to the problem of the rising population in urban areas today, there is also a phenomenon of high vacancy rates or buildings that are not employed due to several causes. Such as low building comfort and the incompatibility of building functions with community needs, encouraging the growing number of building owners to adapt their buildings so they can operate again. Thus, it is essential to investigate the extent of adapting existing buildings to contribute to a more sustainable built environment. Furthermore, it is expected that after a study has been conducted on the role of adapting and realizing sustainability. This study examines the role of building adaptation in obtaining sustainability in our built environment, especially in Indonesia as a developing country. Besides that, it looks at how to adapt buildings to overcome housing procurement problems related to sustainable development in Indonesia. The expected findings from this study define building adaptation's role in realizing the concept of sustainability in the built environment, especially in housing procurement in Indonesia as a developing country. This study uses a literature review approach with a content comparison analysis as an empirical method. This study examines secondary data obtained from several references, scientific journals, and books that discuss the relationship between building adaptation and the concept of sustainability, in addition to reviewing papers related to housing problems in developing countries, including Indonesia, as material for discussion. Thus, understanding the role of building adaptation in providing new facilities in realizing sustainability in developing countries, including Indonesia, is essential. From this research, it can be concluded that Building Adaptation in Sustainability is associated with building adaptation to realize three aspects or dimensions of sustainability: environmental, economic, and social. Adaptation of buildings can be a solution to problems in housing procurement in Indonesia, considering economic, social, and environmental conditions around the dwelling.
