Openhouse London

London Openhouse 2014What a fantastic scheme Openhouse London is. More than 800 buildings and spaces of architectural interest are open to the public over one weekend each year – for free. They might be newly built or Victorian homes modernised by 21st century architects;  or Georgian townhouses furnished as they would have been 200 years ago. They could be church towers  or commercial buildings or construction sites like Crossrail. Some are often open to the public but use this weekend to allow people in without paying- others are private homes, normally not for the public gaze. It’s organised by boroughs so you can find places close to home – or go further afield. This year we stuck to places around W11 – from the interior workings of the organ at St John’s Church on Ladbroke Grove to private houses in Elgin Crescent, Leamington Road Villas and Westbourne Park Road. They were all inspiring. Can’t wait til next year!
