This paper is describing an architectural phenomenon which has been created as a result of an indigenous knowledge of Palembang people. This paper discusses field observation and library study on Malay stilt house in general and traditonal stilt house on the rivershore area in specific. The discussion aims to see whether local people habit is represented in the form of room structure; to see how room space is being used optimally; and to see how the structure and construction of limas house is being completed. To gather data, pyramid limas houses at Musi rivershore are used as the object of observation. In completing architectural design of limas house on the tidal area at Musi river shore, it is important to consider specific stilt house design compares t o other Malay stilt houses in general. The specification in the form of covering indigineous knowledge includes room structure, building orientation, structure and construction system (foundation, wall, and roof elements), and materials chosen. The result of this study shows that indigenous knowledge has allowed local people to wisely predict and anticipate local condition so that they can construct limas stilt house accordingly. However, in constructing and structing the design of limas stilt house, ther e have been some changes in the form of room structure, architectural elements, and building materials.
