The development of vertical housing is an alternative in overcoming the community's need for limited affordable land. Most vertical dwellings are designed and adapted to the provisions and standardization of space that have been set. However, sometimes this causes problems for residents about the comfort of staying because of the limited space provided. As time goes by, the need for space for residents is also increasing. The limitations of the unit dimensions make them adapt by making some changes to their units according to their own wishes. These changes are made so that they get a comfortable stay and their activities can be fulfilled in their respective units. Occupants do many ways to make arrangements or changes to their units starting from changing the function of the existing space. The previous occupant's living culture from horizontal to vertical, requires residents to be able to adapt in a new environment. The purpose of this research is to see the form of space flexibility that is carried out by residents in vertical housing. The method used in this study uses a qualitative method. The results of this study are used to identify how residents adapt in adaptively to residential units in vertical housing.
