Transformation in architecture can be interpreted as an act of change from the origin to a newer form. Transfotmation is in every part of the design, because we process a form always using the name transformation. The transformation of architecture that is happening at this time is very important to observe, especially the transformation of traditional architecture so that the uniqueness of traditional architecture remains preserved. Transformation can be done in several ways, one way that can preserve traditional buildings is through an understanding of eclecticism in architecture. Eclecticism in architecture is something that is considered to provide a new perspective and thought in architecture. All forms of thinking focus on things that are up-to-date in line with the progress of time and technology. But all the latest forms and the greatness of modernism, raises a variety of weaknesses and shortcomings. The desire to produce a work that is free full of feeling with a pluralistic spirit and rich in meaning, makes the dogmas of modernism finally collapse in the storm of eclectic thoughts or alliances between history and technological progress Transformation thinking through architectural eclecticism, especially in making efforts to preserve traditional architecture still dominates the current architectural design. Batak architecture is one of the cultures in North Sumatra that needs to be preserved as a building that has very high cultural values. But the limitations possessed by traditional Batak buildings, of course, are very inhibiting to be preserved thoroughly. Therefore from the results of this study and by using an understanding of eclectic transformation it is hoped that data on traditional elements of the Batak toba tribe can be found which can be used as a way to preserve the values of the Batak culture through the design of contemporary buildings. It is expected that after the research is done, it is expected to conclude that there are many elements in the traditional Batak toba architecture that are preserved through the use of elements that have cultural values.
