What do you want from your retirement home? Peace of mind? A beautiful space that is also low-maintenance? A space that inspires wellness? Named after the Japanese word for ‘healing’, the Iyashi House is all of the above. The 462-sqm home in Bandung, Indonesia is owned by a couple in their 60’s, who moved to the location to be closer to their children and grandchildren.
The decidedly minimalist three-bedroom property is meant to be their retirement home, and it has been designed to be both low-maintenance and age gracefully. Designed by Bandung-based architecture studio Pranala Associates, Iyashi House aims to rejuvenate its dwellers by immersing them in an environment that is free of clutter both digital and analogue, and makes the most of its tranquil setting.
