About Walsh Street House

The iconic Walsh St House in South Yarra, designed by Australian architect Robin Boyd for his family in 1957. It exists pretty much today just as it did whilst the Boyd family lived here, right down to the furniture, artwork and books! Furnished with pieces designed by Boyd’s associates Grant Featherston, Clement Meadmore and others, the house provides a unique insight into Melbourne’s design leaders of the 50s and 60s

The house is now the home of the Robin Boyd Foundation who raised considerable funds to purchase the property in 2004 in order to guarantee its preservation - here, the foundation host various student programs, events and seminars to keep the spirit of the space alive, and educate future generations about Boyd’s work and the merits of good design.

Peter Rowland cater for functions from Banquets for 24 guests to Cocktail Events for 60 guests.
