Artists Homes: King House and Studios


King house and Studio in Warrendyte was originally built as a rectangluar one room house. It was created for Artist Grahame King by Architect Robin Boyd in 1952 and after the authorities rejected the original one room dwelling later amendments were made in 1954 and 1962, adding a bedroom and the work space and studio.

This house was lived in by the same coupe for more than 50 years and I just love the eclectic, warm vibe thougthout the house.... not to mention my favourite feature of mid-century homes .. the large windows overlooking the gorgeous green of the garden.

Hi Gabi,
this house was built BY Robin Boyd - who was an architect and author. It's for Inge and Grahame King. Inge was a sculptor. Just thought these details should be corrected. Cheers, Ruth

What a richly visual, warm and beautiful home. Thank you.

Wow, I haven't been here for a few years, I lost the link. Great to see Artist's homes, I so prefer individualistic, handmade decor such as this as opposed to the same old stuff you see in every home where folks end up all having the same decor--which they purchased from giant retailers. So ho-hum.
