division of the macrocosm into three regions: the upper world; the seat
of deities and ancestors, the middle world; the realm of human, and
lower world; the realm of demon and malevolent spirit. The typical way
of buildings in Southeast Asia is to build on stilts, an architectural
form usually combined with a saddle roof.
Stilts can be found in Indonesian vernacular architecture such as Dayak
long houses, Torajan Tongkonan, Minangkabau Rumah Gadang, and Malay
houses. The construction is known locally as Rumah Panggung (lit:
"stage house") houses built on stilts. This was to avoid wild animals
and floods, to deter thieves, and for added ventilation. In Sumatra,
traditionally stilted houses are designed in order to avoid dangerous
wild animals, such as snakes and tigers. While in areas located close
to big rivers of Sumatra and Borneo, the stilts help to elevated house
above flood surface.
