Rose Seidler House

Iconic mid-20th-century design

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

Rose Seidler House is one of the finest examples of mid-20th-century modern domestic architecture in Australia.

Today it is still surrounded by bushland with panoramic views of Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, and its furniture and fittings form one of the most complete and intact post-World War II design collections in public ownership.

Gardens and grounds

The well-proportioned grounds and sweeping views of Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park make Rose Seidler House a spectacular setting for an outdoor cocktail party or special event, with the bold modernist house as a backdrop.

The house, contents and grounds have all been carefully restored to their original '50s glory and provide an ideal filming and photography location.
