Fujiwara Muro Architects, Ramp House

A 25 meter-long ramp way that coils around the perimeter of the interior space, the house employs a continuous spatial circulation that allows the inhabitants to drift throughout the levels. Programs are defined and differentiated by stage-like platforms which rest in the center of the floor plan, staggered yet connected. Devoid of any wall partitions, the ramps overlook the space beneath as well as establish multiple sight lines in between levels. Untreated wooden columns punctuate the space while providing structural support for the circulatory slopes.
