Brisbane Open House Saturday 12 October

Saturday 12 October Conrad Gargett Riddel will open its doors to the public as a part of Brisbane Open House; a free event that provides a rare opportunity to discover the hidden wealth of architecture and history in buildings and places around Brisbane. This year, Conrad Gargett Riddel is proud to see that 16 buildings we have designed, refurbished or provided conservation management for, are also part of the event. That is over one in five of all Brisbane Open House venues! A true reflection of the heritage of our practice and the significant buildings of Brisbane that we have helped to shape.
