Open House Perth is a free, two-day festival that celebrates the best of architecture, design and the built environment in Perth and its surrounds. It gives visitors unprecedented, behind-the-scenes access to Perth’s best places and spaces.
From commercial towers to residential masterpieces, heritage gems to modern civic spaces, hidden locations to beautifully realised gardens and some of Perth’s leading architecture and design studios; Open House Perth invites people to explore destinations that aren’t usually accessible to the public for one weekend only.
Now in its eighth consecutive year, Open House Perth has opened the doors to hundreds of destinations for over 400,000 people since the first Open House Perth event in 2012. There’s no doubt that the people of Perth have a hunger for good design, a passion for great architecture and a burning desire to experience this unique event.
The Open House concept was founded in London in 1992 with the aim of fostering a better understanding of architecture outside the architecture profession – it now spans the globe. Open House Perth is part of this Open House Worldwide family, and it’s in good company too! Perth’s Open House sister cities including London, New York, Dublin, Jerusalem, Oslo, Chicago, Rome, Buenos Aires, Vienna, Athens, Prague, Madrid, Milan, Melbourne, Brisbane, Zurich, Stockholm, Atlanta and Mexico City to name a few.
It is hoped that people use this event to increase their knowledge of Perth’s built environment, gain a greater understanding of sustainable practices in design, get inspiration for their next renovation project, show off the city to visitors, or just have a good old fashioned sticky beak! It’s an experience that can be shared with friends, family and design lovers of any age.
Consider Open House Perth as your official invitation to get inside Perth’s best destinations this November with a backstage pass to your own city!
Open House Perth returns in 2019 on 16 and 17 November, promising to be the biggest yet.
