However, overpopulation has become one of the major challenges for Bali to cope with, and the impact of this phenomena significantly transform the traditional houses both its use and its form. The uniqueness of the architecture of Pedawa village has not yet been investigated in previous research. This paper aims to explore the detail of spatial arrangement, form, and structural system of the traditional houses, and its conservational effort. The case study method is employed for this research. Both primary and secondary data from interview, site observation, and literature data are analysed with qualitative analysis. The results show that the locals make every effort to sustain their values. The unique spatial arrangement, form, and structural system of the houses are strongly influenced by local customs; lifestyles; beliefs, and the environment. Hence, challenges are due to lack of understanding about conservation by the locals of their values and lack of natural resources; lifestyles; beliefs sand the environment.
