Project Award for Rose Seidler House
We are delighted to advise that Gartner Rose has been appointed by Sydney Living Museums to undertake refurbishment works within Rose Seidler House at Wahroonga.
The project will see Gartner Rose undertake a major electrical upgrade of the heritage listed house which now functions as a museum. Associated works will include roofing, waterproofing, cladding and painting.
Rose Seidler House was designed by Harry Seidler for his mother, Rose, and was built by Bret R Lake between 1948 and 1950. Rose Seidler House is one of the finest examples of mid-20th-century modern domestic architecture in Australia.
Harry Seidler is considered to be Australia’s first architect to fully express the Bauhaus principles and one of Australia’s leading exponents of Modernism. Harry Seidler brought modernism to Australia. Rose Seidler House remains as evidence to the humble beginnings of a man who went on to shape the skyline of Sydney with such buildings as Australia Square, MLC Centre, 88 Grosvenor Place, and Ian Thorpe Aquatic Centre; as well as making his mark around the world with Hong Kong Club, Hong Kong, Australian Embassy, Paris, and traveling full circle to Hochhaus Neue Donau in Vienna, Austria, his birthplace.

The works will compliment our recent projects undertaken with Sydney Living Museums at the Hyde Park Barracks Museum and Elizabeth Bay House.
We look forward to a safe and successful project.
