Robin Boyd Foundation
290 Walsh St, South Yarra Victoria 3141, Australia

Robin Boyd designed Walsh Street for his family in 1957. As an exemplar of Australian modernist architecture, this iconic residence continues to influence design thinking today. The house remains unchanged from the time it was first designed and occupied by the Boyd Family in 1959. Walsh Street is furnished with pieces designed by Boyd, Grant and Mary Featherston, BKF (butterfly chairs), Maruni60, Thonet and Bertoia. Adorning the walls are works by Asher Bilu, Arthur Boyd, Dorothy Braund, Kevin Connor, Don Laycock, and Tony Woods. The residence provides a unique insight into local and international design and art leaders of the 50s and 60s. Today, Walsh Street is the home of the Robin Boyd Foundation. It provides a unique setting for the Foundation’s public programs that promote good design and explore the enduring legacy of Robin Boyd. The residence is also available as a venue for hire. For those unable to join us onsite, we encourage you to explore our Walsh Street 3D tour and Walsh Street Archive.
