Our favourite event of the year is happening next weekend; OPEN HOUSE LONDON. It's a chance to go and have a proper gander at those completed projects you've seen on Dezeen in the flesh; see those details up close, experience the space for yourself and get to meet the architects and /or the clients behind the vision. And if you are starting out on your own renovation project, this is the perfect opportunity to go and get that giddy-head-type-of-INSPIRED. We've picked out our MUST SEE projects for you here.
