Retired Ladies Live Their Dreamlife in a Cosy Forest House


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?

  2. I`ve fallen in love with this house. It would be perfect for us if it was beside the sea with a copse of ancient trees behind it. I want to live in this house now; loved the spiral pool and the tall tent like ceilings. Perfect in every way.

    I’ve always loved the elegance of Japanese art and design, but this ‘house’ totally blows my mind. From ground level, every angle looks like a cluster of round tents, or maybe tiny towers from a fairy-tale, but each ‘tent’ is actually a perfect square which is angled to overlap the other squares to create the illusion of circles. Check the original out, just for the photos if nothing else. And that pool? To die for…-drool-
