Rob Mills Architects is one of Australia’s most forward-thinking residential architecture and interior design studios. It specialises in creating sophisticated, contemporary homes that reflect the personalities of an eclectic body of clients. The homes range from ultra-modern buildings based around simple monochromatic palettes to grand Palladian villas, all constructed from natural, durable materials to create bold, contemporary buildings designed for the future.

Founded in Melbourne in 1991, the practice is as renowned for its interior design work as its architecture. It bases its philosophy on the firm belief that landscape, architecture and interiors are one and must be considered as one. As such, Rob Mills homes display a distinctly urban aesthetic when built in urban locations and are designed to reflect and respect their environment when built in the wilderness.

Rob Mills homes are regularly featured in leading architecture and design magazines and publications. They include bold, contemporary family homes, such as Toorak House and Verdant Avenue, modern beach houses designed to fit seamlessly with their surrounds, such as Sorrento House and Ocean House, and complete heritage restorations and renovations. In 2010, one of Australia’s iconic homes, Ilyuka, set a new level for property sales in Victoria following an extensive and thoughtful restoration by Rob Mills.

The practice also designs inspiring offices and workspaces and is one of Australia’s leading boutique apartment architects and interior designers. It has an unrivalled reputation in the local market for delivering unique, high yield developments in timescales unheard of in the industry. In 2011, Rob Mills obtained a permit for a 48 apartment, three storey building in Church Street, Brighton, within just six months from the purchase of the site – the most significant planning permit ever granted by the council in chambers.

According to practice founder Rob Mills: "When you view our buildings from afar or walk within their gardens you feel uplifted. When you enter our homes, you experience a luxurious sense of space and light which is the architecture expressing itself. It is only when you relax in one of our living spaces, among the artwork and furnishings, and view the landscape beyond that you truly understand what we set out to achieve when we create."
