I about fell over in my chair when I saw the photos of the The Gissing House designed by Harry Seidler & Associates. This home is currently on the market in Wahroonga Australia and has been unmolested keeping it’s original 1972 perfection. Wow, if you were looking for a picture perfect mid century modern home, this would be it.

The Gissing House is that exceptional thing, a distinguished survivor whose authenticity is uncompromised by time, as if, by some miracle, it was kept captive in a time capsule for the past forty years. - Modern House

“In both the Seidler and Gissing houses, Seidler resorted to a split-level arrangement of adjacent floor plates separated by a full height void that opened the interior so the spaces flow in dynamic fashion between the different levels. The Seidler house, on an altogether different scale and budget has four levels, the Gissing House just three and the sloping mono-pitched skillion roof is inclined with the fall in the former and against it in the latter. This makes the two seem the same at first, but the changed orientation of the roof slope in the Gissing House sees the space rise whereas it falls in the Seidler example.” - Modern House
