When the Sliced House has all of its parts aligned, the area within it is rectangular, spacious and easily occupiable. It seems to have four walls and a pitched roof, assuming the form of an enclosure with a rib-like series of slightly separated frames. Now, in the true fashion of Michael Jantzen's designs, this architectural installation has a dynamism to it that offers its visitors a stimulating experience.

The many five-sided structures that make up the Sliced House would actually be set up on tracks, enabling people to push and pull individual parts of the abode in one direction or another. This freedom of reforming the original massing of the whimsical domicile can result in the creation of disconnected spaces, passages and windows. Interacting with the Sliced House would be a playful and imaginative activity for all ages.
