The Ruamplan, (room plan), is a tectonic concept of Adolf Loos from the first quarter of 20th Century. It is a system of thinking of building design as series of interlocked volumes (rooms), many overlooking one another. The emphasis is on a complexity of spaces link by movement through them, particularly vertically. Volumes would be variied in size and shape, based on functional and ceremonial significance and often inter linked by split levels. The Moller (1928) and Muller (1929) Houses are some of Loos' most success examples. There is an excellent little book comparing the Raum system with LeCorbusier's Free Plan
