Renowned Architect Harry Seidler designed his first home in Australia for his parents at 71 Clissold Road, Wahroonga in 1948. It was the first example of 'International Style' architecture in Australia featuring open planning, a flat roof and walls of glass. Seidler famously went on to design such projects as Blues Point Tower 1961, Australia Square 1961-1967, MLC Centre 1972 - 1975 and later Grosvenor Place. The home was given over to the Historic Houses Trust and can now be visited for a tour.
