Open House London 2015
Sunday, 20 September 2015 from 10:00 to 17:00 (BST)
Open House London is the capital's largest annual festival of architecture and design. Now in its 23rd year, it is a city-wide celebration of the buildings, places, and neighbourhoods where we live and work.
1 Greek Street is a Grade I Listed Georgian building in London notable for its rococo plasterwork interiors. The House of St Barnabas is a charity that has operated from this building since 1862, helping those in necessitous circumstances. Our current model is of a not-for-profit private members club and integrated Employment Academy, helping those who have experienced homelessness and social exclusion back into work.
The House is usually open to our members only, this is a rare chance to take a peek inside at the grand Georgian interiors and discover the House's long history. Whilst you’re enjoying the beautiful surroundings of our beautiful Georgian townhouse, why not take a moment and join us for a cup of tea and cake in the hidden courtyard garden.
This is also a perfect opportunity to discover more about the innovative charity and its social business model, as well as taking in The Collective, our own programme of contemporary visual art that showcases the work of emerging and established artists, conceived to inspire and uplift.
Regrettably due to the nature of our building there is limited disabled access, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The House of St Barnabas is a charity pledging to break the cycle of homelessness and social exclusion in London. They run a social enterprise, a not-for-profit members’ club, to help the people they support back into lasting paid work. Their Employment Academy offers accredited qualifications, on-site work experience, real job opportunities and mentoring. The House of St Barnabas are seeking to redefine the notion of a members’ club, to challenge stereotypes around the idea of exclusivity and to create a different kind of membership. The club is a creative, socially conscious and vibrant space.
