This study aims to recommend a design of environmental friendly building based on the local wisdom philosophy of the Sumatera traditional house. The house is a combination between modern and traditional house of Sumatera which is a stilt house. The basement of the house is designed as rainwater storage in order to guarantee the availability of household water supply. On the other hand, the upper part of the house is designed as a dwelling. Simulation is undertaken in order to investigate the water volume behavior in the storage due to the variation of rainfall and water uses in the house. The simulation is applied in a house with a roof area of 54 m2, 4 residents, and 24 m3 of storage capacity. Daily rainfall data are obtained from the rainfall station in Bandar Lampung, Indonesia. The result of the simulation indicates that rainwater facility in the house is relatively effective to store rain water and to provide household water supply. For wet year periods, the system is able to supply about 80% to 90% of the total needs. Oppositely, in the dry seasons, the system can support the household water demand up to 60% of total needs.
