Loft 24-7 Sao Paulo

São Paulo-based Fernanda Marques has achieved a residence called Loft 24-7 in São Paulo, Brazil. The residence has an idealistic balance by using “outdoor” elements inside and “indoor” elements outside.

Limestone, rough stone, steel, glass, wood paneling and furnishings that speak to the architect’s modernist style, all create a harmonious, seamless environment where you are never quite in and never quite out. The decor looks like a continuation of the external elements, combining details that recall the country houses together with those of modern housing in a unique style and great taste. Read More
