for lovers of modernism

An iconic Canberra development designed by the renowned architect Harry Seidler, the Campbell Group Housing is a wonderful example of the golden age of experimental design modernism. An example of post-war international style, exemplifying the hope of the mid-century when small was beautiful and design had an uncomplicated fresh aesthetic.

I never get tired of mid-century homes! I love them for their clever design, their orientation, natural sunlight and airflow, and the idea each space has a purpose. I love the way they make you feel!

This wonderful modernist design delivers light-filled open plan living spaces seamlessly flowing on three levels. Non-pretentious and understated from the outside, the mid-century design focuses on form and function. Flooded with natural light, gorgeous floor to ceiling glass and connectivity to the outdoors, you will be amazed by the openness. Cubiform with a central staircase, curtain wall and large sheets of glass, the stunning design elements have stood the test of time offering a contemporary, functional and exciting home. The townhouse features floor to ceiling windows, glass door to courtyard, mezzanine floor, double-height living area and fully landscaped rear courtyard.
