Adopting the green concept for building as a place for human activities will be proved a sustainable environment. However, giving awareness to care about the environment through habit in the early stage of human life is more valuable. This study aims to find how green building school encourages students’ behaviour to be aware of their environment; and know the application of the green concept in their school. The habitus theory was used to explore how habits can be formed deliberately and how the actors in the school can create communities that are aware of the environment. It showed that the sustainable architecture and eco-environment encourage the user to be familiar with the environmental concept. Those were applying sustainable materials like bamboo as construction of the building; utilization of solar energy and biogas as electricity; recycling animal waste into fertilizer; windmills through underground tunnels as air conditioners; and organic gardening. The green concept in the school creates a green environment and encourages students to establish green concepts in their minds. This study shows that with the sustainable architecture and eco-friendly environment, making the user space are familiar with the environment friendly concept.
