Site Description(MAHS-IDN-ACH-ABS-IJY-S-001-F001) This structure is a residence built on stilts in a traditional Acehnese style. The house is oriented along an east-west axis with the main entrance stairs leading up on the east side. The main building is rectangular with 20 pillars placed in a long row at equal distance intervals. There are 4 long rows with 5 pillars thus comprising a space of four ruweueng (an Acehnese term describing the amount of space between columns). The pillars in the middle two rows are longer than those along the external wall, holding up the higher center ridge of the roof. All the pillars are connected with a wooden frame built into the floor, as well as by the roof beams. The building is entirely constructed of wood, and is joined with wooden pegs. This joinery can be release to disassemble the house, allowing the entire structure to be moved to a new location if necessary. There is an open space under the house, and an additional kitchen building attached to the main building on the south side, also built on stilts. The kitchen has a separate staircase providing access from the west. The roof of a traditional is built high and wide with a simple straight gable shape (perabung satu), traditional thatched with sago palm leaves bundled with rattan. The kitchen has its own roof of a similar fashion. Under the roof, there is an attic space referred to as tulak angen that was used for storage of weapons, food stocks, and other household items. The outer sides of the tulak angen are closed with triangular wooden board ornamented with floral vine motifs and Arabic calligraphy. The floor of the open space below the house has been covered in concrete. The floor of the upper room of the house and the kitchen is made of wooden planks. In the main building the floors are made of wide boards which are arranged tightly, while in the kitchen the floors are made of smaller wood plate and arranged rather sparsely so that there are holes between the wooden floors. The main building consists of three main rooms, namely 'seuramoe keu' (front porch) 'seuramoe teungoh' (middle room) and 'seuramoe likot' (back porch). 'Seuramoe keu' is the living room and the room where the boys of the family sleep. The Seuramo teungoh of this house actually includes two rooms namely the 'juree' (room for parents or newlywed couples) and the 'rambata' used as a family room or living room. In 'seuramo teungoh' the floor is higher than that of the 'seuramo keu' and 'seuramo likot'. The 'Seuramo likot' is at the back it is used to receive female guests as well as sleeping quarters for girls. While the kitchen building is attached to the 'seuramo likot' and there is door access from the 'seuramo likot' and the kitchen. This house also had the modern addition of a bathroom which attached to the kitchen."
Project DescriptionThe Maritime Asia Heritage Survey works to systematically inventory and digitally document the endangered cultural heritage in the Maldives, Indonesia, and elswhere across the region. The materials documented through this work are critically endangered, facing both natural and human threats that jeopardize the survival and accessibility of historical information for this vital node in pre-modern global economic and religious networks at the cross-roads of an interconnected Indian Ocean world. The data made available here was collected by our Field Team using FARO Focus S350 Lidar scanner, Nikon D750 DSLR, and DJI Phantom 4 Pro drone, DJI Matrice 300RTK with ZenMuse L1 and P1 payloads.
