Docklands opens its doors

02 Jul 2009

Five Docklands properties will be open on July 19 as part of Melbourne Open House.

Melbourne Open House is part of the annual State of Design Festival and is an initiative of the Committee for Melbourne’s “Future Focus Group”. The event is free.

Its purpose is to encourage people to get to know their city and design better.

This year Sheds 9 anad 14 at Central Pier, The Gauge in Bourke St and the Harbour Family and Children’s Centre in Seafarers Lane will be part of the event.

Joining this group are the Mission to Seafarers building and Kangan Batman TAFE’s Automotive Centre of Excellence.

Organisers say that this year more than 30 buildings will be open, more than triple last year’s number.

Open House spokesperson Tim Leslie said the team was busy preparing to build on the success of last year’s inaugural event.

“When we opened the doors on the eight buildings last year we were well and truly bowled over by the interest from the public with over 30,000 visits,” he said.

“We found that people come to the city all the time but rarely pause to look up, or explore our city’s buildings. That’s why the event is so popular. It provides people with the perfect opportunity to experience the diversity of our buildings in a way they don’t the other 364 days of the year.”
