Recognized architect Ron Thom originally designed the Boyd House in 1956. The Boyd House is valued as an excellent example of the West Coast Style of modern residential architecture. Boyd House is a small and unassuming house barely visible from Duchess Avenue. The house is sited on the northern portion of the steep lot. A low-hipped cedar shake roof floats over the cedar and cement block base with floor-to-ceiling glass found throughout to accentuate the southeast views towards Lions Gate Bridge. The house reflects Ron Thom's admiration and commitment to local materials, and his approach to know his clients, their lives, and their preferences. The Boyd House was designated as a municipal resource in March 2020.
