About 700 planned events will include the opportunity to view interior designs by Trellick Tower architect Erno Goldfinger.


The designer’s former home in Willow Road, NW3, will be open to the public and features his own interiors and original furniture.


Themes for the weekend include Greening the City, which examines eco-buildings and Future London, which explores the capital’s newest regeneration sites, including the London 2012 Olympic site, the Greenwich Pensinsula and Barking.


Artists’ and designers’ studios will also be open, including Village Underground in Shoreditch, which inhabits disused tube train carriages.


Salis Studio in E5, designed by Craig Bamford this year, is crafted using joinery techniques and sustainable materials, and is used as a painter’s studio.


Open House London takes place from 21-22 September.
