Owner and artist Bronwyn Berman and her husband had been looking for an architect, and by chance had seen a program celebrating Harry Seidler's 70th birthday.
The next day Bronwyn was walking through Park Street and she literally ran into him.
Taking it as a sign, the couple commissioned Harry to start work.
The house was eight years in the making, from its conception to its completion.
Bronwyn describes the house as a living art work that is very feminine in its style and inextricably linked to the surrounding landscape.
Unfortunately Harry Seidler is no longer with us, but we can still put a little 'Seidler' into our homes:
• The look is modernist and that means minimalist, so if you like to horde things this look isn't for you.
• Think open-plan living, high ceilings, muted colours, stone, steel, glass and clean lines. You can soften things by adding rugs and soft furnishings.
• Make sure any key pieces you choose carry on the theme of clean lines.
• Keep it simple and remember in this case, less is more.
