    Default Walsh St House in Melbourne

    Melbourne Home · Walsh St House by Robin Boyd

    The ‘Walsh St House’, or ‘Boyd House II’ as it is sometimes known, was designed by revered Australian architect Robin Boyd for his own family in 1957, and exists pretty much today just as it did whilst the Boyd family lived here, right down to the furniture, artwork and books! 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.

    Walls are way too dark. Looks like a dungeon.

    i'd make the walls less dark and get rid of the red and hot pink stuff.
