Rose Seidler House & Julian Rose House

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.

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.

The Rose Seidler House will open one hour before the advertised event time, to allow patrons to experience the house. The house is not wheelchair accessible, however the talk and performance will take place in the grounds of Rose Seidler House and it is wheelchair accessible.

The venue will open 60 minutes before the advertised event time, to allow patrons to experience the house and its surrounds.

There is ample parking nearby. No food or drink will be available for purchase.

Note: Photography and recording are not permitted at this venue.

Entry & Parking
Car parking is available onsite, or on Clissold Road. Patrons with limited mobility can be dropped off at the front of the house. Please note that the grounds and carpark are quite rough terrain.The performance will be on the lawn in front of the property.

There will be an opportunity to enter the house prior to the performance but please note that the house is not accessible by wheelchair and while people with limited mobility can access the site, there is a set of stairs (about 15) that leads to the main floor of the house. There is no opportunity to sit down within the house as much of the furniture is original and fragile.
