I have always been fascinated with the idea of having the outdoors inside. Not necessarily the idea of just having a bunch of plants around, but more like having grass or trees inside a house or living space planted in actual soil. This fascination spanned into roofs of buildings and houses covered in grass to hang out on.

When I get the chance to design a full building or a large modern house, these concepts will be included.

Designer Juliana Freitas created an indoor garden in Brazil that is simple and beautiful. The exterior landscape design of the house is just as beautiful as the interior.

The link to more photographs of the house can be found here (Casa Villa Real de Itu): http://www.julianafreitas.com.br/projetos.php?cat=1&id=1

Check out the rest of her work… it is quite inspirational!
