Naruse-Inokuma Architects' 'Split House' is an industrial loft home that is located in the heart of Tokyos. Thought the open concept space is both urban and contemporary, it is also rustic in its look and feel -- an aesthetic that is achieved with raw wood framing and finishes. The residence's eclectic feel is also a result of its homeowner's decor style that blends a stainless steel kitchen with a living area that is accented with a raw wood curio cabinet and exotic blanket textiles.

This project by Naruse-Inokuma Architects is a loft home that is larger and more inviting than most urban spaces which can appear too industrial. Blending warm woods and sterile metals, this residence is ideal for urban professionals who are planning to settle down and have a family.
