Rose Seidler House

save place
Bauhaus meets Australia
About half an hour north of Sydney, right on the edge of the Ku-ring-gai National Park, you'll find this mid-century gem of Bauhaus architecture.

The house was built in 1949/50 by Austrian architect Harry Seidler for his parents Rose and Max. The living space blurs inside and outside seamlessly, almost floating in the landscape. As Harry Seidler described it: "...there's never an obstruction to your vision, it is a continuum (of space)".

Unlike most homes of that era (available to the public), this one still contains a collection of its original furniture by Eames, Saarinen and Hardoy.

Open 11am - 4pm Sundays.
