Abstract: The Palembang Limas Houseis traditional house that has an aesthetic based on ornament and proportion of buildings but in the last two decades fails to give the impression of aesthetic because their proportions are used differently from the old Limas House. The ideal proportion is the size ratio associated with the physical elements of the main building and the core building. The purpose of this study is to reveal the relationship between the empirical proportion with the theoretical proportion of the Limas House with three bengkilas at Seberang Ulu Palembang. This research uses quantitative rationalistic methods, 30 Limas House is purposively taken as sample using the criteria of having three bengkilas and at least 100 years old. The search for the elements’ sizes in physical Limas House is done by comparing the space inside the house with the simple ratio in each sample. The result shows that Limas House follow simple ratio proportions based on 1:1 ratio, and in minor extent, 2:3, and the dimensional proportions follow some of the most beautiful ratios. Moreover, the most harmonic dimension is the floor-roof dimension, whichimplies that the house fit for private living, than for meeting or semi public purpose.
