         This article aims to find the spatial characteristics of traditional Tai Yuan Houses. Based on a spatial analytical comparing between interior space in Tai Yuan Houses from the literature review and fieldwork survey in Mae Chaem District, Chiang Mai Province. On issues related to: elements of space, the relationship between space, functions and way of life, and the renovation/extensions patterns and effects to the spaces. Qualitative method was used in carrying out the research based on observation which information was collected from observations and interviews of a field study at Mae Chaem District, Chiang Mai Province. This study found that Tai Yuan House perceived from the fieldwork survey in Mae Chaem District and from literature review are similar in main structures of space’s elements and characteristics but widely different in details of secondary elements which come from the higher needs of more space following in the present Tai Yuan people’s way of life. Interior space is designed in order of access and privacy from outside to inside by using the knowledge about level of floor and enclosure wall to specify living area. This creates a smooth transition of space. The study of Spatial Characteristics in Tai Yuan Houses shows the wisdom of organization of space that is consistent with the activities and way of life of Tai Yuan people. These knowledges could be applied to modern houses design that still maintains Tai Yuan’s identity.
