Check out this incredible multi-home teepee structure called “Jikka” designed by Tokyo-based architect Issei Suma. It’s in a rural, mountainous region of Japan known as Shizuoka Prefecture. It was designed to house a pair of elderly ladies whose idea of ‘retirement home’ is far from traditional.

They live on site with their caretakers, sharing the living space, work space and kitchen, all arranged in a square formation. In the center of the complex, there’s a spiral-shaped pool which is easily accessible for wheelchair users.

These ladies make the retirement years look really good.
