The tropical architecture of island city, Bawean, has been known as a cross-cultural result. The archipelago environment is exposed to high solar radiation and wind, thermal potency and problems are accumulated with the noise problem of the building. Therefore, this study aims to provide the design proposal and analysis for the contemporary architecture with pioneer airport design as an object through re-interpreting traditional channel approach of Bawean architecture as a case. In the transformation process and its thermal interference in the design is evaluated by the Flow Design simulation program to evaluate the proposed design wind flow and a noise control evaluation. The concept of Bawean architecture, mainly the Dhurung Barn, is applied by implying its original form into the modern form without losing the conveyed meaning. The results of this airport design show the locality of shape, space, and zoning, and the formation of thermal and acoustic design integration.
