Project
Review of Conservation Policy and Procedures for Rose Seidler House

Description

Rose Seidler House is unique amongst historic house museums in Australia. It is not only a highly important and influential architectural structure in itself, but also by direct association with Harry Seidler and his family, the contents and surroundings combine to form an extraordinary statement about the mid-century modernist movement in Australia. Twenty years after opening to the public, ICS was commissioned to review the House's Conservation Policy and Procedures.
