Located on a rural site in Japan’s mountainous Shizuoka Prefecture, Tokyo-based architect Issei Suma has designed Jikka – a cluster of tent-like structures which accommodate elderly residents of a small Japanese community. The buildings are designed for two women in their 60s – one a social worker and the other a cook. The 100sqm complex functions as both their home and a workplace. Under the duo’s guidance, Jikka facilitates food delivery service for the elderly, while offering nursing care to those with disabilities. Photo by Takumi Ota.
