Well simultaneous access could be done thanks to the use of slots/mapper , since Z80 accesses only 64kb at
the same time , there could be a 16kb page accessed by Z80 and then by VDP , not simultaneous but shared,
preferably it could be static ram that does not require refresh from Z80 or VDP. it might fit into the extended vram
between 128kb to 192kb.

I guess ADVRAM is what you're looking for, then...
