El tema central de este Blog es LA FILOSOFÍA DE LA CABAÑA y/o EL REGRESO A LA NATURALEZA o sobre la construcción de un "paradiso perduto" y encontrar un lugar en él. La experiencia de la quietud silenciosa en la contemplación y la conexión entre el corazón y la tierra. La cabaña como objeto y método de pensamiento. Una cabaña para aprender a vivir de nuevo, y como ejemplo de que otras maneras de vivir son posibles sobre la tierra.

An artist’s home and studio out of “poor man’s materials”
by kate on February 20, 2012 

According to artist Yuri Kuper, his house and studio is made out of and decorated with ‘poor man’s materials’. While the humble building, which dates back to at least the 15th century, may seem spartan by today’s standards, in its day it would have been a rather grand manor house.

Situated in the picturesque Pays d’Auge in Normandy it has been Kuper’s home and studio for the last twenty years. Even though the building is imposing in scale it blends beautifully into its surroundings. When Kuper initially found the building it was almost beyond repair and badly decaying after decades, if not centuries, of neglect. A year of renovation resulted in a building which is light, sleek and modern, but you won’t find any of the hallmark modern pieces of furniture here. Instead, Kuper used salvaged materials and antiques he sourced locally and thereby created a stunning space which is both simple and practical modern place to live and work while at the same paying homage to its historic past.
