Rose Seidler House

Jan 1, 2017 | ARCHITECTURE


I spent the first day of 2017 visiting the Rose Seidler House in Sydney, Australia. It’s a house I’ve wanted to visit for a long time, but now that I am spending some time in my hometown the opportunity finally came for me to do so. I have a passionate interest in architecture and I just love this Bauhaus inspired house. Rose Seidler commissioned her son Harry Seidler to design this house for her and it was built in 1949-50. It was his first project in Australia and kick started further commissions and a long & successful career in Australia. At the time that this building was designed, many of the materials and furniture were not available in Australia, so Harry brought many of the required materials with him. Although this house is now over 60 years old, it still looks as modern as it originally was. Even the technology was thoughtfully integrated into the interior design. If you find yourself in Sydney, do make the effort to come visit the house, you can only fully appreciate it’s aesthetic and ingenuity by seeing it in person. You can visit using a Sydney Living Museums ticket which is fantastic value and allows you entry to lots of other great museums in Sydney.
