Designed as a modern day farmhouse in Ostuni, Puglia, Masseria Moroseta by Andrew Trotter, uses local materials, traditional building methods and details from the local architecture, resulting in a building that fits perfectly within the olive trees, a real Pugliase vernacular. The masseria is a working farm of organic olive oil, and has six suits with private gardens, for holidays immersed in the countryside, with views to the sea.
Architectural Simplicity In the Paintings of Helen Shulkin
Helen Shulkin creates mixed media artworks and portrait paintings. In a search for new methods to interpret the urbanity, Helen focuses on the idea of metamorhoposis from architectural complexity into limpid compositions through her individual esthesis. Contemplating urban objects like industrial constructions, central stations, building sites, terminals… she sees an infinite simplicity, evoking a sense of melancholy. Using experimental mixed media, Helen tries to convey this complementarity, resulting from the fine relation of urban form and her innermost content.
