Eco-Friendly Loft in São Paulo, Brazil by Fernanda Marques

Fernanda Marques, Brazil based architect studio has designed this sustainable winter loft for 'Casa Cor 2010 exhibit'. The house is build with modern open-space entirely covered with recycled wood inside and out. Efficient LED lighting system reduces energy consumption. Inspired by sustainability issues, this house is expended to horizon and nature.
The architects designed a modern open plan space which houses a living area, gourmet kitchen that is equipped with upscale stainless steel appliances, bar and a video hall. The living area seems huge and this is possible due to the floor to ceiling windows and the skyscraper picture on one of the walls. Furthermore the bar has a sculpture like a mountain form behind it, which is also used for storage and captures light beautifully.

From a conceptual point of view the eco-friendly 2,228 square feet (207 square meters) loft was designed as a single open-plan space with a great lounge, containing a living room, gourmet kitchen, bar andvideo hall, all designed to meet the needs of a hectic family's everyday life.
