The Japanese forest home that’s enchanted the design world

You could easily mistake this magical abode for a luxury retreat on Airbnb, but this complex of five teepees is in fact a retirement home called Jikka.

Designed by renowned Japanese architect Issei Suma and located in Japan’s mountainous Shizuoka Prefecture, this conical cluster is home to a pair of ladies in their 60s, a social worker and a cook.

Jikka offers nursing care to people with disabilities and a food delivery service to the elderly. It also contains a range of facilities including a spiral-shaped pool and a spacious stainless steel kitchen.

Check out the gallery for a closer look at the stunning design and striking interior.
