The mixing dimension is generally correlated to the east-west spatial direction. In an analysis of a kerala house design [Moore] observes how the house opens out to the east allowing for the intermingling with visitors. As one moves toward the west, the rooms become smaller and more private. Other researchers [Ifteka] have noticed how the kitchen hearth always faces the east thereby establishing the mixing dimension of the agni-kama metonymic correlation. To compensate for the heat generating activity of sexual transaction, the bedroom is usually in the western interior (the cool side) of the house.
