Things We Love: Open House Melbourne

We love good architecture and design. So it’s no surprise that we are a big fan of Open House Melbourne and the Open House Worldwide Network.

‘Open House’ is a simple but powerful concept – showcasing outstanding architecture for all to experience, completely for free. Open House initiatives encouraging everyone to go exploring in their city and discover the value of a well-designed built environment. 

Each year in July, Open House Melbourne holds an annual free Weekend that encourages Melburnians and visitors alike to explore outstanding houses, buildings, infrastructure and landscapes. The Weekend puts a spotlight on the unique spaces and places that form the foundation of Melbourne, providing an opportunity for you to consider what makes Melbourne unique.

The Modscape design team has been attending the Open House Melbourne weekend each year for nearly a decade, so we are ecstatic to announce that we will be partnering with the organisation this year and becoming an Official Practice Partner of the 2016 Open House Melbourne Weekend.

Modscape’s support will help Open House Melbourne continue their vital public engagement work. Open House Melbourne’s goal is to ensure Melbourne remains a liveable and vibrant place by better connecting people with their city and educating our city’s future custodians on the importance of good design. And we’re thrilled to help them do it.

On the 30-31 July 2016, Melbourne will throw open the doors to the city’s most treasured and architecturally inspiring buildings. The Weekend event has become an integral feature on Melbourne’s annual event calendar, with over 100,000 visits during the weekend.
