Can traditional settlement and building arrangements reduce the greenhouse effect? The article discusses the patterns of settlements and buildings arranged in a traditional way related to the occurrence of the greenhouse effect such as the construction of housing and settlements at the present time. To achieve this, an understanding of the greenhouse effect from housing construction activities was carried out. To get data on traditional Balinese settlement patterns, field observations were made in Bongli Village to observe settlement patterns and the arrangement of buildings and their effects on global warming. Field observations will be narrated qualitatively in relation to the greenhouse effect. The results of field observations and discussions showed that Balinese Architecture and traditional housing and settlement patterns in the Village of Bongli, the building layout, as well as the building period used local materials, open spaces, so as to reduce energy use. Energy reduction due to functional buildings, so that during the day save electricity.
