A Contemporary Reimagining of Robin Boyd’s Fenner House
Sally McGarry grew up in the Fenner House – a significant 1950s house designed by Robin Boyd in Canberra’s Red Hill – that inspired her own family home, Las Palmas.
Designed by DUO Architects in association with Davis Architects, the Byron Bay hinterland property is an entirely new build that captures the mid-century style of Boyd’s original, while responding to its very different site.
The property is home to Sally, her husband Matt, and three boys, and is also available to rent part-time as accommodation.
