The Room of slope is a study in time and movement,” known as Neal, who lives in the house with his family. “I wanted to play with the fourth dimension, stop watch; deliberately to slow down the step of the voyage by the house. I wanted that the people tested the order of space differently that just packing in top

The red color determine the house's masculine look. The owner said in the website that it is a 'time experience', rather than just racing upstairs. Finally there is the most of spatial experience in the house.

The architect also has a big consideration on scale and proportion, as well as connection with the history of the site and its surroundings.
