Rapid growth and unplanned physical development of the vernacular settlement, as a response to internal and external issues, will result in problems related to the sustainability of the settlement. Sungsang, a fishing settlement area on the eastern coast of South Sumatra, has long been grown in the estuary of the Musi River even currently is functioning as the hub of social and economic activities for the people in the surrounding areas. The vernacular settlements over the water formed by hundreds of houses on stilts that connected by walkways, was built using simple construction technology have been able to adapt and survive against the influence of sea waves. However, uncontrolled growth of the settlements and the presence of some natural limitations cause serious problems on the carrying capacity and the quality of the environment. The transformation of physical and spatial structure feared to have a negative impact to the characteristics and the existence of the fishing settlement and will affect the implementation of various development plans in this potential region. This paper is attempt to explore issues regarding the house form and settlement pattern as well as its interaction with the environment and to determine the strategies needed for the physical development of the settlement. The qualitative method is used through a descriptive analysis to get the physical development factors necessary for this area. The study is expected to be the basis for a variety of advanced research potential for developing appropriate and contextual technologies to support the development at traditional fishing settlement in the next future.
