The house provides a unique insight into Melbourne’s design leaders of the 50s and 60s. Designed by Robin Boyd for himself and his family in 1958, the house is widely recognised as one of Australia’s architectural icons of the 20th century. It remains largely unchanged from the time it was first occupied, furnished with pieces designed by Boyd’s associates Grant Featherston, Clement Meadmore and others.
The house is now home to The Robin Boyd Foundation who hosts private events, celebrations and seminars designed to preserve Boyd’s legacy. By providing a forum to share knowledge and inform and inspire discussion, it is hoped the space will raise awareness of the importance of design.
