Performance of functional facilities like retail and shop in general usually designed for bright day activities, from morning to afternoon. At night, many retail and shops turn to a contrast situation, they became a dead facilities and some are very frightening because of no activities could be found. Pekojan Street in Semarang is one of the very relevant example to represent this condition. Pekojan street is located near the old city residence of Semarang (china town street extension), and it looks like chinese colonial style with two or three stories building as tipology. The function of these row complex building is for bussines, and untill now Pekojan street has became the most crowded bussiness area in Semarang during the bright day, but at night it became a silent path, dark and frightening. The contrast condition between day and night has raise a notion that the main problem is about the lack of general lighting along that street, or lack of building own lighting. But after long times runs, the condition is still the same. So it bring forth new allegations that there are some other reasons that cause the pekojan street uncomfort at night. Some possible reasons are: the building don’t have good design preparation facing the night activity, and the community are not interest to have night activity in Pekojan. People there are living for economics purpose, and it is only during the sun shining.
