Retired Ladies Live Their Dreamlife In A Cosy Forest House Designed By A Japanese Architect

Have you wondered how you’ll spend your retired days? I’ll give you an idea. A genius Japanese architect created an unique home for 2 retired ladies with their caretaker and a cook.

Issei Suma is known for his intriguing buildings, but this structure shaped like 5 tents are really eye catching, due to the harmonious flow and the design that perfectly combined minimalism with an ecological style. The building features a spiral-shaped indoor pool and a common kitchen for both ladies. This 100 square m complex is called “Jikka” and is located in the Japanese mountains Shizuoka Prefecture.

Though the 3D structure appears like a tent, the plans are perfect squares and they overlap one another. So, how does the house of your dreams look like?

Looks very cool but I think it's not that cosy inside

Japanese open baths aren't very insecure about nudity unlike western culture

So cold inside. Needs wood floors... and some more home-like feel to it... some rugs may help. Right now it feels like a museum...

Rugs are not a big thing there. Maybe some tatami mats could go in there. I'm not fond of the bare concrete walls, but from the photos, it doesn't look like they've moved in yet.
