Kemijen is a region in the eastern Semarang that experiences tidal flooding for years. Although the government has tried to address to the environmental problem, the danger of tidal flooding is still a threatening issue. One way to make people live comfortably and adjust with this condition is to build a hydraulic stage house. The hydraulic stage house is a stilt house that can be both raised and lowered according to the level of water. In addition, this kind of house is made by low cost material, which is bamboo. One hydraulic stage house has been built for one of the residents living in the most severely affected area in the Kemijen region. This stilt house affects their mobility of the people in the house, and the use of this stage house is in accordance with the initial purpose of developing hydraulic houses. This study uses qualitative methods through an in-depth interview and observation approach. The results of this study are that hydraulic stage houses help residents to be free from water when the tidal flood comes. However, when the soil is dry, the owner of the building can use the space according to their needs such as for communal space or playing ground. It can be said that the hydraulic stage house is a safe place to go when tidal flood comes
