CULTURS HAUS: A Place for Global Living

This is my dream.  To inhabit or restore a historic building with a lot of character. To take a building that has seen many, and bring in barreling into the 21st Century by having different Cultures, People, Food, Art and languages fill its spaces.  I call it CULTURS HAUS.

It would have the Restoration Hardware look, as shown in the video.  What would be even more fantastic is if Restoration Hardware partnered with us to make it an RH gallery.  The rest of the building would be like home, replete with:

  • A place for travelers, artisans, entertainers and global thinkers.

  • We would have entertaining events every other month, complete with globally-inspired cooking classes.

  • Language events to encourage native language speakers to interact with those trying to master that language.

  • A research Center about Third Culture Kids, Global Nomads and those with liminal identities (multi-ethnic, multi-racial, all of us who are “in-between”).

  • A place to host global travelers who stop in from around the world.

  • Space to showcase programs and charitable giving around the world, and to tell the stories of their people.

  • Living and studio space for artists who are part of our summer Artist Residencies, not to mention a global gallery.

  • And of course retail areas, so you could take a piece of us to your home.

This is my dream.  A place where people feel comfortable, can connect, learn and grow.  A place to feel alive!

I look forward to introducing you to Culturs house in 2018.
