Spanning over forty years, from the fifties to the eighties, The Forever House is a roll call of the work of Australia's most acclaimed architects - from Robin Boyd and Harry Seidler to Glenn Murcutt and Peter Stutchbury. Interiors are authentic, left almost untouched, and offer a true voyeuristic glimpse into the lives of families who in many cases have lived there for decades. A forever house is flexible but also timeless and as we see, evolves with the changing needs of family life.

They are the modernist explorations, remote raw-timber cabins and postmodern rarities rather than the most seminal works. They are houses that you would never want to leave - homes that transcend their era, bring endless delight to daily living and deftly respond to life's chapters. The homes gathered together in this volume have been collected individually for the Houses magazine "Revisited" series.
