Concerns about the waning identity of Balinese architecture led the Provincial Government of Bali to issue Perda No. 2, 3, 4 of 1974, which was later revised to No. 5 of 2005 concerning Architectural Requirements of the Building. . This requirement emphasizes that building architecture in Bali must have the characteristics of Balinese traditional architecture, especially in tourism areas where there are many tourist accommodations. But on the other hand, there are various perceptions and interpretations according to the interests of each architect regarding the Architectural Requirements of the Building. Architects as practitioners in architectural design have a responsibility to maintain environmental quality, especially architecture in Bali.  This study aims to identify the Architectural Requirements from an architect's point of view. The subject is architects who practice in Bali, selected by purposive sampling technique with the keyword tourist accommodation architectural designers in Bali. The variables of the design process that are the focus of the study are aspects of creativity dan critical issues. This study uses a qualitative descriptive analysis method, namely by using a questionnaire with a Likert scale. Data analysis was performed by ranking each statement variable to obtain a comparison between the architect's interpretation variables. This study identifies two broad categories, namely how architects view traditional Balinese architecture as a priority issue that must be considered in designing and how the architect's cognitive response to Architectural Requirements in the design process.
