Nowadays, not all traditional buildings are still standing firmly on. Many of them have disappeared by nature disruption or by cultural distillation. This study aims to promote Baruk spaces meaning as a traditional house of Bidayuh, who settled in the western part of Borneo Island. Through its structures have proffered the knowledge on how important to preserve Baruk (its forms, elements, and functions) as a part of Dayak cultural heritages. The method of this research based on descriptive analyses and qualitative. At first, the study investigates Baruk spaces through critical comparisons of the architectural theories and its space experiences that have delivered some conclusions depicted Baruk space structure. Then, it reviews to find actual interrelationship among function, image, code, form, and material of architectural elements. Finally, the semiology approach used to explain communication on its structure in order to get its space meaning. Investigation at the Bidayuh villages in Serian, Bau, and data collection through pictures, sketches, and some interviews within the Kampung Budaya Sarawak, have altogether contributed to this study. The study argues that Baruk, in its primary function, tends to fulfill its connotation function rather than its denotation function.
