    Abstract

    The Javanese house is an artificial environment of the manifestation of cultural values that contains values of function, meaning and symbol. Physically, the house contains implisit meanings that accommodate domestic activities. The shape of the house becomes a mode of materializing human existence, as a cosmological symbol of manifesting self-orientation. The Javanese house becomes a symbol that is vertically measured transcendent-metaphysic and horizontally immanent. A house, in the view of the Javanese people, is the materialization of comprehending the macrocosm/universe and the natural environment or the natural condition surrounding human life, as well as the microcosm/human and his socio-cultural values.
