Abstract

The paper explores the traditional houses in the village of Pedawa, one of the indigenous settlements in the north of Bali concerning their social-cultural life. A qualitative inquiry with ethnography as the research approach carried out the study. The study reveals that the specific aspects of cultural life, particularly the belief system and worldview, articulate and order the domestic life of the dwellers. Home-making with material culture, evidenced by domestic spaces and spatial arrangement, is designed to give positive cosmic energy to the family.

Keywords: domestic life; living house; Pedawa dwellers.
