The Cinta Kasih flats are flats built by the Indonesian Tzu Chi Buddhist foundation headquartered in Taiwan. These flats were built by the Tzu Chi Buddhist foundation as the owner of funds for the national housing complex for the DKI program in alleviating slums. Cinta Kasih flats are built on an area of ​​5.1 ha. Currently, the Cinta Kasih flats are inhabited by 4,000 people or around 1,300 families. This housing itself is divided into 2 blocks, namely Block A and Block B with 18 RTs, and is located in RW 17, Cengkareng Timur Village, West Jakarta. The existence of an available flat hardscape must be able to support it as a means of socializing and doing activities, so in terms of hardscape it needs to be designed so that it can be used optimally by residents of flats to support various neighboring activities, chatting and playing. The hardscape design of park benches, garden lights and trash bins for Cinta Kasih flats can support the activities and needs of residents. Hardscape located in flats is expected to be operated by the community safely and comfortably. The basic concept of hardscape that will be applied in the residential flats functions as a provider of a sense of comfort, security and cleanliness to residents. The hardscape form is shown to give the identity of the flat, paying attention to the aesthetics, functionality, and comfort of the occupants of the flat.
