Houses of a style new to Australia are appearing on Sydney’s North Shore. One is at Turramurra in wild country …  The style is still novel in Europe and America, and the architect…Harry Seidler, believes that Australians will accept the new style now that they can see houses that have been built here.

(Cooper, Nora, “Sydney showpiece”, Australian Home Beautiful, Feb 1951)
