A stepped habitat is a type of space habitat.
The habitat spins to create artificial gravity through centrifugal force. The transverse cross section of the interior surface was not uniform. The interior surface was arranged such that, toward one end of the structure, it fell away from the axis of rotation over a series of steps. The centre hollow volume was roughly conical in shape and each step experienced different gravities.
