The elements that should always be present in industrial homes include raw concrete, exposed plumbing, unfinished materials, and stainless steel and glass touches. All these details and more are present in this minimalist house in Talisay City, Negros Occidental. Inspired by modern Japanese architecture, the home of architect Bernie Sason and wife Cecile is a stunning example of industrial interiors.

After years of living in the traditional three-bedroom bungalow they moved into as newlyweds, Bernie and Cecile finally decided to build their dream home. With his experience as one of the owners and designers of Sason Shop, a furniture store in Bacolod, Bernie effortlessly created a clean and bare space. For a modern but comfortable style, he paired concrete, steel, and glass with Philippine hardwood furniture, woven pieces, and textured stone.
