Comparing Two Bewildering Modern Teepees
Jikka: A Whimsical Teepee
Behold yourselves this is not an illusion, nor is this cluster of pointy huts part of a movie set. It is actually a real home in Japan for elderly women, and they call it “Jikka.” Their perfect oasis lets in natural light through its large arched windows and skylight. So, what do you think about it? Take a look at these photos and then tell us what you think on our Facebook Page! Oh, and don’t miss the OTHER teepee project on page 2!
JIKKA was commissioned by two women in their 60s, one a social worker and the other a cook. The cluster of five interconnected huts only occupy a space of 100 square meters, however, comprise a variety of facilities including housing, bathroom with a spiral bath, spacious kitchen, and restaurant that’s open daily and serves food made from locally sourced ingredients. The clients also prepare and deliver meals to the elderly in the local community.
