‘When [the] house was finished, people used to come in … people were four deep. My mother had to leave the house sometimes on the weekend, because they were all standing around the windows you know, trying to see this incredible contraption’ (architect Harry Seidler, 2003)

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 in fact 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. The radical design both inside and out integrated architecture, art and technology in a bold and optimistic vision for a new way of living. Today, still surrounded by bushland with panoramic views of Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, the house is 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 and intact post World War II design collections in public ownership.

Rose Seidler House - Sydney by Harry Seidler

Built in 1949-1950, Rose Seidler House is a Bauhaus-styled home designed by Harry Seidler located at a suburb of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. The client was his parents - Rose and Max Seidler. The house was futuristic and modern for Australia at that time, and is an outstanding example of mid-century-modern domestic architecture.

Rose Seidler House is not just an evolving museum now; it is an international architectural icon that requires its own set of principles that may at times appear to be at odds with our preconceptions of standard museum and conservation practice.

Harry Seidler wanted a new way of living for his parents when he designed the Rose Seidler House. He brought furniture and appliances from America that couldn't be found in Australia, and took away walls for a more open living which was first in its kind.
