The Warrandyte Connection

Sat January 5, 2019 @ 1:30 pm - Sun December 29, 2019 @ 4:30 pm

Warrandyte Historical Society commemorates Robin Boyd legacy in a small exhibition. Learn about Boyd’s upbringing in his family home ‘The Robins’  and his artistic parents, Penleigh Boyd and Edith Anderson. Also find out about the five, nearby Boyd houses still in existence. They were all commissioned by members of Warrandyte’s artistic community and are a vital part of the town’s rich architectural heritage.

In addition to his family home, the Robin Boyd designed houses in Warrandyte are:

The Nichol House 1949: Artist Tim Nichol
The King House, 1951: Sculptor Inge King and husband Designer Grahame
The Finlay House 1952: Journalist Keith Finlay
The Wright House (2) 1962-64: Graphic artists Joyce and James Wright
The Arnold House 1963: Pianist Ann Arnold
The houses are all privately owned and NOT accessible.
Warrandyte Historical Society is opened Saturday and Sundays afternoons only.
