Showcase a House in Open House Belfast Architecture Festival

Is there a house in the Greater Belfast area, maybe your own or one you have worked on, that you would like to showcase through this year’s Open House Belfast Architecture Festival. If so, get in touch with Brighdín Farren, Creative Producer at PLACE on 028 90 232524 or by this Friday, 10th June 2016.

The festival dates are 22nd and 23rd October 2016.

‘Open House’ is a simple but powerful concept: showcasing outstanding architecture for all to experience, completely for free. Open House initiatives invite everyone to explore and understand the value of a well-designed built environment. The concept has been established in many cities around the world.

Last year Open House Belfast was very successful with 50 venues participating and over 1,500 visits. Click here to view the 2015 brochure.

This year the festival is keeping some of the favourites and adding some new exciting locations. One of the themes this year is housing and homes and the organisers would love to give people the opportunity to visit spaces that have been designed for living in.

House owners are asked to provide access to an area of their home for a small public tour facilitated by the architect who worked on the project. The house should have had a significant, however small, bit of work done which has altered the structure. The organisers are also interested in homes that have remained untouched for decades and have certain historical qualities remaining in their design, layout and finishes.

If you are interested don’t forget to contact Brighdín before the end of the week.
