Let's take a look closer to one of one design award by Texas Society of Architects / AIA, a house called 'the ramp house'. A nice looking house by geometrical composition.
The floor plan of ramp house you can see above, shown the siteplan , foor plan and section plam of the building
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.
