Rose Seidler House

The radical design of this influential house integrated architecture, art and technology in a bold and optimistic vision for a new way of living.

A brief history

When completed in 1950, Rose Seidler House was ‘the most talked about house in Sydney’. Designed by the young Harry Seidler for his parents Rose and Max, the house overturned almost every convention of suburban home design. It was the promise of designing a house for his mother that brought Harry to Australia, and its success helped launch his Australian and soon after international career. Still surrounded by bushland with panoramic views of Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, its furniture and fittings form one of the most complete and intact post–World War II design collections in public ownership.
