Brisbane’s Open House Is Back For 2022 And Wants You To Get Snooping

Calling all design nerds, appreciators of architecture and lovers of a good old fashioned snoop around: Brisbane Open House is back for 2022. Queue ALL of the gorgeous buildings, hidden treasures and private residences opening their doors to the public for one weekend only.

Held annually, Brisbane Open House champions our beautiful city’s design in all its forms and our diverse architectural heritage. From 27-28 August, step inside some of Brisbane’s most iconic—and often not open to the general public—government buildings, award-winning private residences, public spots and curious spaces ripe for having a bit of a sticky beak (and some serious ‘gramming ops)!

While the full program is yet to be revealed, Brisbane Open House has announced that over 40 venues will be taking part, including several never-before-seen buildings to explore. Personally we're just hoping to have a poke in some people's designer houses that will make us feel even worse about the fact that we'll never be able to afford them.

New to the program is the inaugural ‘Iconic Precincts’ series, which this year will focus on Fish Lane. Offering you the chance to explore and engage with the laneway’s unique architecture and design, it will also provide the opportunity to take a tour of The Standard, a sculptural landmark development that has redefined apartment living. 

Also new to BOH is Villages of Brisbane, which will take place on Sunday 21 August in and around the bayside suburbs of Sandgate and Shorncliffe. A heap of the 'burb's quaint buildings will temporarily be opened for a sticky beak, many for the first time ever. 

On top of these incredible buildings opening their doors, there will be a number of events and talks taking place across town as part of the 2022 Brisbane Open House programme.

Lock it in your calendars and stay tuned for more details on where exactly you'll get to take your voyeuristic tendencies.
