Open House Melbourne 2015

  • July 22nd, 2015

Melbourne’s favourite architecture and design weekend, Open House Melbourne, is back with a line-up that won’t disappoint!

Held over 25 & 26 July, the event puts a spotlight on the unique spaces and places that form the foundation of Melbourne – from outstanding houses and buildings to infrastructure and landscapes across the city. Over 105 buildings will open their doors and invite visitors to get close up and personal and get access to spaces not normally open to the public. And the best bit – it’s all for free.

A range of interesting buildings are on the program for this year including the new Melbourne School of Design, the supposedly haunted Melbourne General Cemetery, the heritage listed Meat Market and the subterranean ‘J’ Substation. There’s also many beautifully designed houses – like the Northcote Hemp House, constructed using hemp as a building material – and tours of interesting urban spaces including Federation Square.

While the weekend event has become a vital part of Melbourne’s annual event calendar, we’re thrilled that Open House Melbourne is now extending its event and activities throughout the rest of the year.

But that said, if you are in Melbourne this weekend and have a love of architecture and design then this event is something you don’t want to miss.

The complete building list for the weekend event can be found on the Open House Melbourne website.
