Traditional buildings have several in-depth meanings in both their architecture and interior design elements. The Sundanese traditional house is not merely a building, it is a sacred precinct, dwelling spaces of gods and spirits. In Sundanese culture, especially in Kampung Naga, house becomes the center and axis mundi of their life. This qualitative research starts with pilot study, continues to observation, then collects oral and written data, and completes it with in-depth interview. Cultural studies and exploratory data approaches are also applied. The result of this study portrayed that Sundanese traditional villages are depicted as sacred spaces when the founder, the belief, and the nature spirits are interrelated. Thus, the creation of traditional houses in Kampung Naga does not only serve as shelters, but also has "breath" and "soul". Additionally it may embody cosmological value and give unique analysis with trinity pattern approach called tritanggu. This paper is prominent in the documentation of Sundanese traditional buildings as one of cultural identities in Indonesia, which will deliver the cultural knowledge to the world wide.
