The 24-7 Loft by Fernanda Marques Arquitetos Associates in Sao Paulo, Brazil is a bungalow style oasis which focuses on incorporating the exterior environment within.
"Being inside feeling like one is outside. I believe that to be a key issue in understanding the interior design being produced today. In times when environmental awareness is growing, and, of course, also the desire to be close to nature." -Fernanda Marques
Can anyone see the Mies Van der Rohe in this home?
The immense amount of light and use of natural materials create a soothing palette and a sense of spacial continuity. High gloss furniture + limestone floor+ leather= ahhhhhh
The plush rug and upholstery make this bedroom feel so inviting and cozy, even though its nearly all wood and glass. The light reflecting on the ceiling planks is pretty amazing too! And the pendant above the desk--yes, please!
I love the pattern and texture the books create with their slight tonal variation. And look at the art--pretty cool, huh? And mis-matched nightstands...I am liking :)
Light, light, and more light! What an amazing indoor/outdoor space.
And in case you were wondering, the back patio is just as amazing! That sofa and fireplace are calling my name. Thank you Fernanda! Let's start this week out right, and stay inspired, shall we?
