This paper is a study of traditional Karo House's aesthetic elements in terms of dualism and triple patterns. Karo, which is located in North Sumatra has a lot of indigenous and cultural history. One of those histories that still survive today is the Karo traditional house. This traditional house not only functions as a protector of its inhabitants from the local climate, but also has a function and deep meaning in accordance with the customs and culture of its people. In the Karo traditional house, the form, function and patterns of the aesthetic element illustrate the close relationship between humans and the natural environment. This paper is intended as an in-depth discussion of the meaning contained in the Karo house's aesthetic element patterns. Not only as a documentation of cultural history but also as a development of science in the world of interior design education.
