Rose architect, Harry Seidler. He came to Australia

Rose Seidler House is a Bauhaus-styled home which was designed by an Australian architect, Harry Seidler. It is located in a wild or uncultivated country at 71 Clissold Road, Wahroonga, an upper north-shore suburb of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. Seidler House was the first commission for the internationally renowned architect, Harry Seidler. He came to Australia from New York to build this house especially for his parents Rose and Max Seidler Rose Seidler, who lived there until 1967 however, because Rose Seidler was the person who started and drove the commission, making every single decision of the main client, the house was therefore named after only her. Rose Seidler House was amongst the most talked about house in Sydney when it was built in 1948-1950 and featured open planning and a minimalistic design and all the mod cons and appliances of the day. In the decades after it was built, Harry Seidler had designed many important, unique, conversation starting and award-winning residential and commercial buildings. Overall Harry Seidler had introduced many new innovative ideas and construction techniques and made a major contribution towards Australian architecture all of which are still used and looked at today.Rose Seidler House is amongst one of the upmost uncompromising modernist houses in Australia. Tucked away in natural bushland, the house has panoramic views of Ku-ring-gai National Park from its glass walls and sun filled deck. Furthermore the house is currently managed and maintained by the Historic Houses Trust of New South Wales, which is now called Sydney Living Museums as a museum that has been open to the public each Sunday since early nineteen nineties. The house, which was Built in 1949-1950, gave a futuristic and more modern vibe for Australia at that time, and is a great outstanding example of the mid-century modern domestic architecture. Restored to its 1950s scheme, Rose Seidler House incorporates the modernist features of open planning, minimal colour scheme, appliances and labour-saving devices that were new to Australia. Its original furniture is one of the most important post war design collections in Australia. The radical design both inside and out integrated architecture of a concoction of art and technology in a bold and optimistic vision for a bolder more new way of living. This amazingly designed house amplifies the surfaces that enclose a normal house or space, and turns it into a continuum of free standing panes, through which the observers eye can never see an end, you are always intrigued by what’s beyond, you can always see something floating into the distance, there is never an obstruction to your vision, it is a continuum of space, and I believe that a 20th century man’s eye and senses would most definitely respond positively to. Awarded the Sulman Medal in 1951, it has been a very influential house, stimulating an abundance of social comments and intellectual debates.
