OPENHOUSE Magazine is a twice yearly publication, that looks to bright, creative people from around the world, that open their homes or their private spaces to the public, to make different activities about gastronomy, art and design.
Printed in Lleida, Openhouse is a magazine filled with beautiful photography, interesting interviews of people who open special places around the world that the reader can visit and join in with the activities.
Openhouse is also a guide to their secret loved places in their towns, and some favourite recipes. Openhouse is a multi lingual publication; all articles are published in English and the language of the interviewee.
Openhouse was started by Andrew Trotter and Mari Luz Vidal, and we are building a small team of collaborators who are designers, writers and photographers from all around the world.
Openhouse - Issue 18
Stepping back to a simpler life
Inspired by the poem of Octavio Paz, La Vida Sencilla [The Simple Life], in this issue we dive into the stories of people who have taken a step back into their lives and practices with sterling results. Jaume Roig applies this idea to his art in pottering and painting. Iker Ochotorena homage to the vacuum in architecture.
Chef Kobus van der Merwe cooks just with the local ingredients he finds in the fisher town of Paternoster, in South Africa, where his restaurant Wolfgat is located. Meanwhile, Casa Josephine Studio work-process leads Pablo and Iñigo to find the unpretentious perfection in design.
