in the japanese coastal city of yatomi, architect hisanori ban has completed a three storey dwelling where each area of the home is connected through a gently ascending ramp. behind the exterior’s concrete earthquake-proof walls, a connected series of rooms offers residents communal and secluded living space, with a large open plan kitchen found at ground floor level. above, individual volumes that open out onto the ramped circulation route can be closed to ensure privacy, creating an insulating double skin in the process. a roof terrace is found at the culmination of the incline, offering views across the residential neighborhood.
