They design some of the most significant spaces for some of the most prestigious companies and residential clients in the world, but for one weekend only they will open their doors for you to see the ideas that inspire them.

London architecture firms including Fletcher Priest Architects, Foster + Partners Studio, Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners and more will all take part in this years Open House Event.

By opening their doors to public viewing sessions (be warned, you must book through Open House online) participants hope to show how concepts of good design enrich the quality of life.

And if the likes of Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partner’s spacious glass office at Thames Wharf is not enough to lure you, other iconic buildings will be on display, from banks to art spaces, schools and government buildings.
