Openhouse is a Lifestyle & Culture Magazine, a guide to creative people around the world who open their homes and private spaces to the public to share cultural activities and experience life together. In Issue No 3 we visit Analiese Gregory in her weekend cabin in the foothills of Sydney, who tells us about her love of woodfire cooking for her friends. In Brooklyn, Karen Mordechai tells us about her Sunday Suppers that started in her home and now has a large base of "New Friends". Coloni in Sweden tell us about their floating Pocket Park, that was set up to teach residents that you don't need to have a large space to grow your own flowers and vegetables. Then we visit Lea and Rob's b&b in Fiskiars, Finland, who have made much more out of the old village laundry. In the beautiful Tuscan Hills, we stayed at the stunning Villa Lena; part hotel part artists residence, a creative hub to escape the city. Andres takes us on his classic wooden sailing boat, Yanira, in the regatta of Menorca, where you can join him for a not typical sailing experience. Then back to Barcelona and "las cosas de Martinez" who's home holds weekly dinner and theatre evenings. Jean-Claude opens his doors for us in Frankfurt, where his Privatoffspace, is his home and a gallery of art. We end this issue with 3 days in the beautiful home of architect, Jorn Utzon in Mallorca. He loved to share the house with fellow architects and friends so much, that his family started the Utzon Foundation and give the house to architects to spend time to contemplate, think about a project, or simply take time out, and enjoy this magical piece of architecture.
