In the proposal for designing natural ventilation of open tropical houses, environmental noise control is the simultaneous challenge. Nevertheless, the air circulation strategy for refrigerating and dehumidification can accept airborne noise transfer from sources to inside receivers once the wind direction is in the equivalent path as the noise generator. The deal concerning the design for site barrier and maintaining or preserving the tropical building material can help resolve the warm and noise environment instantaneously regardless of the diverse geographic settings. This study generates the model code of the site barrier of the tropical urban on thermoacoustic subjects as thermal and acoustics' incorporated design. Matlab encoding is used for obtaining noise propagation control to support physiological cooling. The representative tropical buildings, Javanese housings are the case for investigating the urban built environments. The results revealed that considering the decomposition by distance remaining to geometrical propagating, the code involved diffraction, ground effect, and mitigation of sound due to atmospheric absorption. The analysis of essential factors results in the diffraction correction code as the most critical looping. The proposed overhang barrier controls the properties of the noise transmission loss and the reduction of estimation error, which causes imprecise noise management.
