The house is the most familiar space in family life. The house is also a reflection of the system of ideas and worldviews in smallest community, but it has a big impact in the nation. This paper discusses the ecological justice in term of interwoven meaning in the dynamics of the structure of the symbolic space in the construction of a traditional Javanese traditional house, Kudus. We use a cultural semiotic approach in symbolic, paradigmatic and syntagmatic relations to be able to capture the fabric of meaning in cultural communication between family members both internally and externally. We conclude that in the construction of the traditional Javanese house of Kudus there is a relation of spatial structure and meaningful symbols both in ornaments, plants, and forms of decoration that reflect child-friendly family communication within the pillars of Islam. This can be observed starting from the five traps in the foundation, supporting poles, ornaments and decorations in various spaces and also in the visualization of the roof and prominent tiles. This profound message shows that the values of environmental justice in the awareness of the meaning of the Javanese are imbued with harmonious communication in relations with God, humans and their environment
