Open House Hobart is back this month providing a rare look into some of Tasmania’s most historic and intriguing buildings.
Across the weekend of November 11-12, more than 70 buildings will open to the public in Hobart and beyond.
This year’s program includes homes previously featured on The Design Files, from a compact timber home built for just over $100,000 (Apple Crate Shack) to a restored 1842 cottage in Oatlands (Bozen’s Cottage), and a dramatic and dazzling getaway in the West Hobart bush (Slow Beam).
The event also includes walking tours, garden tours, exhibitions, architectural drawing workshops, and speaker series.
Organised and operated by the Tasmanian Chapter of the Australian Institute of Architects, Open House Hobart is the local version of the event first held in London in 1992 now staged in more than 30 cities around the world.
The weekend is a chance to explore Hobart’s unique built environment, discover its architecture history, and hear stories about the city.
Open House Hobart is free to attend, but registration for some buildings is required. View the full program online here.
