Pyramid Architecture ... in Japan

This residential pyramid architecture in Hiroshima is as innovative inside as its facade would lead you to believe. Designed by Japanese architecture firm Suppose, this pyramidal design is almost whimsical, with a dark, dramatic aura – quite the contrast to the traditional village-style homes in the area. Starting from the front entrance – a step down, rather than the predictable step up – leads you into a sunken main floor; a concrete space encircled by windows and topped with the rest of the stilt home. As you make your way up through the big, bold black structure, a staircase takes you from floor to floor through an open well, topped by a skylight that floods every floor with natural light. Surrounding the open central stairway, each floor plan works its way around and offers a view of every other floor. Now, that’s what we call an "open concept" house plan! Suppose
