AusHeritage at Robin Boyd’s Walsh Street House

RBA Director Roger Beeston and key emerging heritage professional, Meher Bahl, were delighted recently to accompany eminent international museum expert and conservationist, Vice Chairman of ICOM-Committee for Conservation and AusHeritage Chair, Dr Vinod Daniel to the iconic Walsh St Boyd House, led by the indefatigable Boyd Foundation chair, Tony Isaacson.

This modernist marvel was design by Robin Boyd as his residence for his own family in 1957. It is one of his most iconic works and is now home to The Robin Boyd Foundation. It is recognised nationally and internationally as an extraordinary example of modernist Australian architecture.

“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.”
