The Gajah Mungkur reservoir (GMR) area is located in Wonogiri district. The reservoir was built to prevent flooding issues. There are some parts of the reservoir that function for nature tourism. This function has supported the development of other infrastructures and facilities. In addition, the development of Wonogiri district has promoted a variety of new growth centres. Therefore, sustainable development is urgently needed to minimize negative impacts on the environment both now and in the future. This study aims to assess the level of sustainability of the GMR area through a simulation method on the floor area ratio, operational energy, lifecycle, and design accessibility. The findings show that the GMR area had a sufficient sustainability habitat system based on the parameter standards value with various buildings intended for residential, retail, office, and hotel. This study suggested that GMR area had high sustainability habitat based on the standard of Operational Energy (OE), lifecycle of building, lifecycle of facade and glazing, and design accessibility. Meanwhile, based on the simulation, Floor Area Ratio (FAR) in the GMR area had a low value since the study area was dominated by green area. The low FAR value indicated a low building density in the GMR area, and it may be considered that there is a high possibility of improving the rural development of the area. The research results are expected to contribute to the sustainable development of the GMR area. © 2024, Thai Society of Higher Eduation Institutes on Environment. All rights reserved.
