Melbourne Open House 2013 Launch

The recent launch for the 2013 edition of Melbourne Open House was a rather macabre affair.

Melbourne Open House 2013 Launch


July 8th, 2013

Organisers took the unorthodox approach of celebrating the 2013 launch at Melbourne General Cemetery’s Saint Mary of the Cross Mausoleum by Harmer Architects. Demonstrating the wide variety of  properties (normally out of bounds) that are on offer this year, the event kickstarted the two day program that falls on July 27th and July 28th.
