Defining architecture as a creative and comprehensive activity, Fernanda does not limit her work on the playing field. Besides the architecture and interior design, your company develops objects, shows and projects with graphic content, auditory and visual. Disciplines that were united in their first collection of design: the extremely expressive and accurate parts made of stainless steel, created around a bookcase for Casacor in 2010.
Background & Realizations: the projects
A refuge where a young couple of collectors and their two children could relax, live in harmony with its collection of works of art and design and at the same time feel at home in the heart of London.
More than any other, the project required the architect an accurate study of materials and colors used in the interior, in order to ensure free walls in sufficient numbers, as well as spacious and bright spaces.
Unlike the Property original configuration – characterized by divisions between private areas and comuns- the interiors have been redesigned as large spaces connected by restricting the use of ports only when necessary.
The most iconic projects
Limantos House | Fernanda Marques
Architecture. The layout of this house built on a plot of steep slopes, in São Paulo, refers to the rationalist architecture of the German Mies van der Rohe. Famous, among others, the pavilion built in Barcelona to host the Universal Exposition of 1929, still open to visitors, in Montjuïc slopes.
Here, as there, coexist simple geometry. The same dynamic of integration based on the ostensible use of glass. The same desire for permanent fusion with the landscape and feel close to the water. In addition to a permanent attachment to material considered essential in the vocabulary of architecture: concrete and steel.

Kept the distance of nearly a century is not surprising that the dominant theme of the two buildings remains transparency.
The idea of opening the house to its surrounding space to better catch the light and create spectacular views to its residents, from different points of view.
Another of reference points, a spiral staircase provides access to the mezzanine where are the home theater, the gym and terrace with fireplace. Reserved for the intimate area, the lower floor has room for kids, and three bedroom suites, and the largest, the access is through a large hall which distributes the circulation to the baths, master and mistress, and the closet.

The living room connects to the dining room by an equally outstanding all glass that integrates deck, infinity pool and side garden; while, in the dining room, a window-door opens directly to the outside. Thus, almost bounded only by glass panels, the house seems to be immersed in the surrounding countryside.
