The Viennese-born architect Harry Seidler had already established an international reputation before he arrived in Sydney. His claim to fame was his designing a house for his parents. Australia was then struggling out of post-war austerity and Seidler's uncompromising, modernist building which is nestled in natural bushland aroused much controversy. Now managed by the Historic Houses Trust, the interior has been restored to its original 1950s scheme and contains a major collection of furniture inspired by the Bauhaus Movement. Well worth a trip when in Sydney's leafy upper North Shore.
