The 'Minimalist House' by Tukurito Architects is an industrial home that is located in Japan. While the residence features a stark and paneled exterior, its interior is less utilitarian and embodies a warmer look and feel.

Contrasting the home's dark exterior cladding, its interior is accented with clean white walls and warm wood finishes that add a cozy element to its overall aesthetic. Designed with practicality in mind, the home's bedrooms also cater to its residents' needs -- in this case, a single family with small children.

While this home's kitchen blends hard stone with softer wood materials, its children's bedroom is accented with a whimsical climbing wall, used as a way to reach an elevated alcove that its younger inhabitants can sleep, lounge or play in.
