Making inroads

Heritage victory #2, The Thurlow House saga concludes

A month overdue, but still some great news, Harry Seidler's Thurlow House, a home transfer which caused a minor snafu in Modernist and heritage circles last year has with co-operation from the new owners and the Heritage Council of NSW, achieved state heritage...

Compulsory viewing from Aunty
