Humans need a home for a comfortable life especially with family. For the Indonesian people, culture shapes the human life, as well as for the Balinese people who have strong traditions. Balinese people believe that there is a relationship between the universe or macro-cosmos (the natural environment) and micro-cosmos (the houses), whereby human life must maintain harmony with nature, where all three elements (philosophy, art and aesthetics) are applied. This can be seen to the reliefs carved on the walls of standard houses in the front yard to the back yard of the house, including outer space adjacent neighbors. Those are filled with reliefs and sculptures which have full of meaningful tradition. Given that the standard house has a limited area of spaces, it is difficult to restructure it for the aplication of Balinese tradition because it has already been established. The stucturing of rooms and spaces of the house and the sculptures are placed, to present meaningful presence according to the Balinese culture (Main Problem).
