Rose Seidler House
A new way of living
When completed in 1950, Rose Seidler House was ‘the most talked about house in Sydney’; today it’s an architectural icon. Designed by the young Harry Seidler for his parents Rose and Max, the house overturned almost every convention of suburban home design to create a bold and optimistic vision for a new way of living. The house today remains one of the finest examples of mid 20th-century modern domestic architecture in Australia, and its furniture and fittings form one of the most complete post World War II design collections in public ownership.
Part of the international ICONIC HOUSES network which connects architecturally significant houses from the 20th century that are open to the public as house museum. The network also focuses on conservation, management, policy and cooperation.
