In the 1950s, 60s and 70s architects like Harry Seidler, Robin Boyd, Ken Woolley, Michael Dysart and Graeme Gunn applied their talents to project homes, bringing high-end design to the suburbs. Backed by Pettit a Sevitt, Merchant Builders and other project builders, architects created small, deceptively simple houses which transformed the look of suburbia.
