The use of space and the distance of a person when he/she communicate will make an individual in a calm situation or vice versa. In the context of the Malay traditional house architecture and design in states in Malaysia namely; Perlis, Selangor, Trengganu and Melaka were found that the distance of the three or communication space were used, i.e., intimacy, personal and social or public. Besides that, it was found that space and distance made language and diction used for communication verbal or nonverbal.
