Those of you who are in Auckland this weekend might want to check out an event being run by the Auckland Architecture Association on Sunday June 7 - a series of architectural open homes in Freemans Bay.

Seven homes by excellent architects are opening their doors between 10am and 2pm. Tickets cost $20. To register, email Kristen George at or call 021 388 374. Once you've registered, you can turn up to any of the homes on the day, buy a ticket, and wander at your leisure to the other open homes in the area. All proceeds go to the Auckland City Mission.

The homes include this one by Daniel Marshall Architects, photographed by Simon Devitt:

The other homes taking part in the open home day are by Gerrad Hall, Patterson Associates, Russell Withers, and Cook, Sargisson and Pirie. It's a rare chance to see inside these places for yourselves, so do register and come along if you have the time.
