Brisbane Open House

Open House Worldwide is a global network of Open House events which has become a worldwide movement.  Open House cities include New York, Tel Aviv, Stockholm, Chicago, Barcelona and Dublin.

Each Open House city is run as an independent organisation but all adhere to a shared set of values and ideals. For more information visit

Open House has become an annual event which raises awareness of the value of good design in cities across the world. Brisbane Open House is proud to support the following Australian Open House events – Open House Hobart, Open House Melbourne, Open House Perth.

In 2020 Open House Worldwide hosted its first 48hour online global festival. On 14 and 15 November 2020, the Open House network presented a wide range of content that you can access on the OHWW Festival site.



Since Brisbane Open House began in 2010 the Open House program has grown throughout Queensland.

As Queensland’s regional centres offer high quality and diverse range of architecture, design and heritage a regional program was a natural progression of the Open House concept, with the first regional event – Maryborough Open House held in 2012.

The Open House regional program supports tourism, along with cultural and professional development beyond Brisbane. Each regional event is an opportunity to celebrate not only Queensland’s diverse architectural trends – but diverse environments, heritage, and community needs and desires.

The regional program has grown far and wide to include the Sunshine and Gold Coasts, Bundaberg and Cairns.
