Shiva is one of the three major deities of Hinduism. He is Anant, one who is neither found born nor found dead. At the highest level, Shiva is regarded as limitless, transcendent, unchanging and formless. Śiva - Of the five faces of this deity (Śiva), 1. the one facing the east is that of Īśāna, 2. that facing the south, of Īśvara, 3. the west, of Brahmā, 4. the north, of Īśa and 5. the top of Sadāśiva.
Actually, Shiva has six heads, of which only five (Isana, Tatpurusha, Vamadeva, Aghora and Sadyojata) are visible, while the sixth (Adhomukh) can be seen only by the enlightened one. Each of the five heads denotes one of the five elements:
1. Isana - internal aspect that conceals - associated with all that exist - represents ether.
2. Vamadeva - north aspect that sustains manifest Brahman - associated with Vishnu - represents water.
3. Tatpurusha - east aspect Rishi, Muni, Gyani and Yogi - represents air.
4. Aghora - south aspect that rejuvenates manifest Brahman - associated with Rudra - represents fire.
5. Sadyojata - west aspect that propagates manifest Brahman - associated with Brahma - represents earth.
It is the Chitta Shaktī or power of the individual consciousness to realize the universal consciousness. Īśāna Represents Space. Starting from Ajna to Sahasrara leading to Brahma Randra in your body. Isha possesses excellent qualities of controlling mortal and divine beings with ease.

All ceremonials, such as installation (sthāpana), should be done only the Īśāna face i.e. facing East. May be that is the reason East is given importance in Vastu Vidhya.
This is zone for those who desire to attain perfection in yoga, mantra-siddhi, meditation and are in pursuit of knowledge. The quality of this zone is reduced ego to ashes signifying absolute love for the universe and freedom from cosmic law.
