Daring Home without Walls or Ceilings

Fernanda Marques created something radical - a home that is truly one with nature. In order to accomplish this, she took a big risk - she built a 2,700 sq ft (250 sq m) home that isn't completely covered with walls or ceilings.

Situated in São Paulo, Brazil, Loft 24-7 is the perfect place to enjoy sunny days. Limestone, rough stone, steel, glass, wood paneling and furnishings were all brought inside to create a harmonious, seamless environment where you're never quite sure if you're inside or out.

"I believe that being inside and feeling like one is outside is a key issue in understanding the interior design being produced today, especially In times when environmental awareness is growing and there is a desire to be close to nature," says Marques.
