Open House Dublin 2015: This Place We Call Home

Home is where I want to be, pick me up and turn me round. 2015 marks the tenth edition of Open House Dublin which will take place from Wednesday 14 to Sunday 18 October this year. This year our title is This Place We Call Home and we’re looking at the theme of domesticity and urban space.

Homes already confirmed for this year’s programme include House in Rathmines, home of (and by) Ireland’s most celebrated architects Sheila O’Donnell and John Tuomey; 23 Leinster Road, the renovation and conversion of an early 19th century townhouse by A2 Architects; 8 Richmond Place, the home and studio of young practice Carson & Crushell Architects and a spiritual home: the Holy Faith Spirituality Centre in Glasnevin by MOLA Architects.

Favourite homes from previous years are also back, including the frozen-in-time Iveagh Trust Museum Flat (Nellie’s Flat) in Dublin 8 and No.10 Henrietta Street, one of the oldest buildings on one of the oldest streets in Dublin.

As well as building tours, the 10th outing of Open House Dublin includes an extended programme of other events, a highlight of which is The Big Housing Debate on Wednesday 14 October. Also returning this year is Open House Junior, a series of creative events to enable young participants to play architect for the weekend, and Open House Plus, made up of ancillary exhibitions, walking tours and film screenings, among other events.

Open House Dublin is presented by the Irish Architecture Foundation and is part of the Open House Worldwide Family. Open House Dublin 2015 is funded by the Government Policy on Architecture, Dublin City Council, Airbnb and Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council; and supported by JCDecaux, Totally Dublin and Luas.
