No bookings required, just turn up!

Architects: Stage 1: Maria Gigney/Studio Ilk (2010); Stage 2: Studio Ilk (2023)

Designed by Studio Ilk and Maria Gigney, Queen Street House is a low-budget timber-clad house, constructed with constraints due to its location within a significant heritage area. An economical construction system was used to build this relatively substantial building with limited capital, which lead to the creation of an off-centre pitched roof building. The house has been enjoyed by the family for several years, and the second and final phase of the project is currently underway.

Open: Saturday 11 November 2023, 10 am – 1 pm

Note: This is a shoe-free household.


*  On Saturday, 11 November, Open House Hobart ask everyone to observe a minute silence at 11 am for Remembrance Day.
