The Robin Boyd Foundation is reopening Robin Boyd House starting from 22 June 2020 for tours, events and educational activities. With appropriate procedures in place.
The Walsh Street house is the focal point for the activities of the Robin Boyd Foundation. This remarkable home now hosts dinners, seminars and cocktail functions, providing a forum to share knowledge and discussions on diverse topics that provide an insight into a greater understanding of the benefits of design and raise the profile of the foundation’s objectives.
The house remains unchanged from the time it was first designed and occupied by the Boyd Family in 1959. Furnished with pieces designed by Boyd’s associates Grant Featherston, Clement Meadmore and others and then photographed by Mark Strizic, the house provides a unique insight into Melbourne’s design leaders of the 50s and 60s.
