The planning and design of "Taman Samarendah” in Samarinda city to mix the traditional to modern architecture aim to facilitate educational activities, worship places for Muslims, and cultural and religious destinations in the field of architecture. The Taman Samarendah located in the ex-land of Junior High School 1 and Senior High School 1 were built in a 2.5-hectare area, specifically around 1.4 hectares is for the park area. The construction began in July 2014 and finished in 2016 and made Samarinda city a Green Open Space. Taman Samarendah is located in the middle of town, so the community can easily access it. This park has bins, lighting, seating, jogging tracks, and other facilities. This study applied the concept formulation approach under a qualitative descriptive method. This study applied a related theoretical foundation technique, either architecture or non-architecture. The data collection was validated for accurate data processing to prepare the concept of planning and design of Taman Samarendah. The planning and design of the Taman Samarendah in Samarinda City with the concept of combining traditional and modern architecture is expected to become a tourist site that has educational value to cultural heritage in terms of architecture and non-architecture and accommodate the Islam worship activities in Samarinda City. The existence and sustainability of traditional houses must be maintained. The traditional houses may disappear faster than we thought. Therefore, further research should review the combination of modern and traditional houses set out in local regulations and laws.
