We meet the founders of The Grandhotel Cosmopolis in Germany, a cross between hotel, restaurant and social project, that give refugees a place to live and work. After years in the theatre business, Lluc and Borja hold regular concerts and theatre nights in their home, a short drive in the countryside a stones throw from Barcelona, while Carlo, of Masseria Moroseta, invites guests to slowdown between the ancient olive tress, in the Pugliese countryside. Diana and Olga invite artists to their home, to create interventions and use their Buenos Aires loft as a blank canvas. We end with a guided tour of the VDL house in Silver Lake, whose current custodian, Sarah Lorenzen, talks to us about its restoration, Richard Neutra and his life and dreams, and how important it is to open this home once again to visitors.
We invite you to slow down with us to a quieter rhythm, to take time for our ourselves, and time to meet new friends and share our love of the simple things in life.
