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 of 144 pages, 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.
In issue No.6 we meet Monica and Ricky of Delicious & Sons, who tell us the importance of knowing where your food comes from. From there we travel to the farm in Australia, where Tash and Ben involve the whole community in sharing their knowledge at A Plot in Common, whilst Sara Tasker invites people into the Yorkshire Moors house to exchange gifts or work for room stays.
We get a guided tour of the house, sculptor Xavier Corberó, built for himself on the outskirts of Barcelona, and a tour of Lisbon by Armando and the team at O Apartamento. In the Brazilian jungle, Marko built a home Arca, to share and for its guests to learn from the surrounding nature, then aboard the houseboat Varda, just outside of San Francisco for a floating artists residence.
Tagomago invite people to share their love of photography in their gallery home in Barcelona, and we finish with a visit to the recently opened home of Eileen Gray, Cap Moderne, that was famously vandalised by Le Corbusier, and where he passed away.
