Dream Forest Retreat For Retired Ladies In Japanese Mountains

Posted on Architecture 52

Have you heard the expression that your golden years are the best ones? Well, it would be hard to argue if you got to live in an amazing retreat home like the one designed by Japanese architect Issei Suma.

This 5 tent-like building complex named “Jikka” is located in the Japanese mountains in Shizuoka Prefecture and is inhabited by two retired ladies, their caretaker and a cook. Minimal on the outside, this 100 square metre forest house is fully equipped inside and even features a spiral-shaped indoor pool.

Not the worst alternative to a retirement home, right?
