About Open House London

Open House London has established itself as a key date in the calendar for inquisitive architecture enthusiasts. Refining its program through more than fifteen years of experience, the architecture education organisation brings architecture to the wider public, challenging and building our perception of the built environment. This year, Wallpaper has delved into the organisation's databases and drawn up an edit of the thirty finest contemporary buildings on this list. From behind the scenes tours of iconic public spaces to well-concealed private houses, you can click through our selection on the map above.

We're also proud to present interactive floorplans of the five of London's best new-build houses, allowing you to undertake a virtual visit around these fine examples of urban residential architecture. All are opening their doors in 2009.
