Seidler Offices & Penthouse, Milsons Point tours

The offices of Seidler & Associates and adjoining penthouse at Milsons Point are testament to Harry Seidler’s unwavering attention to detail in the design of spaces for working and living.

Kalowski House, Dover Heights. 1958.   ‘The problem was to design a house in a treeless built-up suburb without any view. A house on the corner site, in order to provide for outdoor living, had to turn within itself. With the absence of natural vegetation, materials and finishes were chosen that result in a design dependent on sharp contrasts of black shadows on crisp, light, synthetic finishes.

J Tuck House, Gordon. 1952. "The Tuck House was built in the centre of Sydney’s leafy north shore in the early 1950s as an example of good modern design for people ‘of modest means’. Small and compact in overall size, but visually enlarged by extensive views of the garden and bushland, the open-plan layout remains as ‘modern’ and practical in the 21st century as it did over 60 years ago."

Cohen House, Palm Springs. 1994. "The client’s brief was for a single house designed to maximise the enjoyment of the natural environment. The plan divides daytime and night uses by an open well, opposite the central entrance. Spaces are formed between opposing blade walls of differing textures, which are recalled externally, visually blurring the boundary between interior and the exterior."
