Since hundreds of years ago, people of vernacular traditional Desa (Village) Adat (Custom) Tenganan Pegringsingan in Bali Indonesia, perform ritual activities throughout the year besides their non–ritual daily activities, in desa communal space. The activities mostly ritual, have been performed as manifestation of desa people life philosophy called “the cycle of life”, and based on their principles of mutual cooperation and togetherness called “sangkep”. It is not only the activities, but configuration and the lay out of buildings on communal space of desa, considered as persistent as well. In the context of spatial–behavior study, constellation between the activities, desa people, and the use of spaces, shown as a group of many standing pattern of behaviors–physical milieux, in other words circumjacent of physical milieu to standing pattern of behavior and vice versa occur, determine the behavior setting. It is known that the objective of cultural structure can be achieved, when interdependency between standing pattern of behavior with the physical milieu in a setting behavior occurs, called synomorph. The constellation indicates also correlation between behavior–milieu with sangkep, mostly with physical milieu in particular. This possibility comes up since most of buildings, other than housing compound residential units, were designed without or with half full building envelopes then a large amount of continuous space being formed by process of permeation of outdoor spaces into interior space of buildings. Based on those facts this paper is intended to discover the behavior–milieu synomorphy of traditional vernacular village Tenganan Pegringsingan behavior setting. Qualitative research as a source of universal method applied for assessment of whole objects, while descriptive analytical method applied for structuring in order to perform primary and secondary data concerning activities, desa people, and use of spaces. The spatial–behavior theory applied to assess desa communal space, in order to see the effectiveness of behavior–milieu of the communal space through the synomorphy of them. The results can give a new perspective of behavior–milieu synomorphy of different behavior setting, for all this time it has always been in the non–vernacular traditional perspective. Besides to reveal its correlation with sangkep, then the possibilities of evolving the behavior–milieu synomorphy of behavior setting with the more dynamic or endurable physical milieu.
