Abstract

A home is very important in terms of developing a healthy family and a good community. In this case, Denpasar is a city that continues to grow in terms of city population (3.83% per year). Millennial population currently reaches 1/3 of the total population in Indonesia and they are very active individuals in digital media. However, the Industrial Revolution 4.0 has changed the way the millennial defines themselves and also changed the way they live in this world. This is due to their active connection with gadgets and social media. The problem in this study is how large conventional homes can provide comfort spaces for millennials, especially those who are married with children. Therefore, this research uses a qualitative method with literature study, questionnaire, and interviews to get information. Based on surveys and analysis, it was discovered that many millennial families change their rooms in terms of functional needs. They creatively change the way they use conventional spaces depending on their professions such as photographers, online merchants, and freelance architects who needs to work from home. Why they do this? It is because effective communication with clients can be done through social media and other communication applications on the phone. Furthermore, while they are working, they can also monitor their children and freely do other things like hobbies.
