The Founders, about themselves
We are Andrew Trotter and Mari Luz Vidal, the founders of Openhouse Project in Barcelona. Andrew is an interior designer and art director, and Mari Luz is a photographer. Nearly 2 years ago we started to open our home to the public. First we opened as a photography gallery. Together with Ana Schulz, every 3 months we open a new exhibition accompanied with guided visits, and close with a thematic dinner with the photographer for 15 people. Shortly after we started making different events such as sushi parties and classical music concerts with dinner, with our flatmate Nobu (one of the best Japanese chefs in Barcelona). Since we first opened we have grown from strength to strength, and the community of people we are making love to come to our home and experience food and photography in a more close and intimate way. Our events have also grown. We now make talks, workshops, concerts and dinners, and we are the organisers of the Kinfolk gatherings here in Barcelona.
