Following a sell out season at Melbourne Design Week, Tim Ross and Kit Warhurst are thrilled to return to the place where it all began, Rose Seidler House!
For the last five years they have taken temporary possession of architecturally significant buildings and skillfully blended storytelling, music and design in a mold breaking format that has seen them literally sell out houses across the globe.
Following rave reviews for the recent film series, Streets of Your Town, we are pleased to partner with Sydney Living Museums to present this show at the iconic Rose Seidler House by legend Australian architect, Harry Seidler.
“Must see show of the Festival” – New York Times
“Had us in stitches.” – Sunday Times (UK)

“With quick wit and telling anecdotes, Tim shares his passion for modern design and architecture — the fortunate audience is left both enlightened and entertained.” – Wendy Kaplan , Department Head and Curator Los Angeles County Museum of Art
Tickets are extremely limited, book now to avoid missing out.
The show runs for one hour and 35 minutes with a short interval.
Rose Seidler House by Harry Seidler AC OBE
Harry Seidler (1923-2006) was notably one of Australia’s finest architects of all time. Having designed more than 180 buildings, he received much recognition for his contribution to architecture through out his career. With projects spanning the globe, he worked on residential, commercial and public commissions.
Seidler was best known for leading the modernist movement in Australia and his use of new building technologies of the time.
Seidler’s first house was the Rose Seidler House, which he designed and built for his parents. Completed in 1950, the glass walled, elevated cubiform house was revolutionary. The ‘most talked about house in Sydney’ during the 50’s, the house overturned almost every convention of suburban home design. An integration of architecture, art and technology, the house stood for a bold and optimistic new way of living.
