The Design Files Open House – Last Day!


 THE DESIGN FILES OPEN HOUSE  is a unique collaboration between The Design Files and The Project Agency.  

YES it’s a pop-up. But it’s not in a vacant shop front or a shipping container. For one week in December we’re transforming a stunning residential home in Fitzroy, Melbourne, to create a temporary retail event unlike any other. 

A natural progression for Australia’s most popular design blog, THE DESIGN FILES OPEN HOUSE is the ultimate stylised Melbourne home, with an added bonus – everything is for sale! From bedlinen to books, artwork, furniture, kitchenware and lighting, each and every item can be purchased on the spot. 

We have carefully selected a group of local designers, artists, makers and retailers whose beautiful wares will fill this space. There’ll be a cafe on the roof deck, a flower stall by a fabulous local floral designer, cooking demonstrations in the modern open-plan kitchen, and events every day and night.


THE DESIGN FILES OPEN HOUSE is located at 40 Little Napier Street, Fitzroy. (Map)

  • Please note there is no parking in Little Napier Street.
  • Limited street parking in Gertrude, Napier and Brunswick Streets.
  • Secure Parking at 115 Victoria Parade ($10.00 all day).
  • Better still come by tram or bike.


Thursday December 1st to Sunday December 4th 2011.
Open 10.00am – 5.00pm, over four days only.


THE DESIGN FILES OPEN HOUSE will operate an online shop for 2 weeks during December – almost everything in the house will be available to buy online during this time.
