Wildwood House by Robin Boyd

Romberg & Boyd Architects 1970

Description

Wildwood House is the only remaining house designed by Robin Boyd during his partnership with Frederick Romberg in the City of Whitehorse.

This five-bedroom mid-century house was designed in late 1964 for the Noble family, and construction was completed in 1966. It comprises two large wings on the northern and southern ends, with a central courtyard separating them. Furthermore, one of the notable features of the house is the irregular skillion roof with bagged and painted brickwork, a common design theme of Boyd from the early to late '60s, as well as repeating brick colonnades on the elevations of the house. This house is a significant example of the larger residential designs done by Boyd at the tail end of his career.
