Stepped Ecohouse in Sendai

The building stands on a site with an open view to the north and a slope to the south. The roof is built to take over the slope of the road in front of the house, and there is a series of sweeping windows on the north side. PCM, a latent heat storage material, is mixed into the soil of the plastered walls to store sunlight and direct the warmed heat from within the walls to under the floor of the dining room and kitchen.
