Sorrento | Shades of grey
Rob Mills talks about his trademark moves.
What is your favourite feature? I think we
su cceeded in throw ing away con ven tio n an d have
shown people that they really don ’t need to dress
up a house and live in a formal way.
Are there any trademark Rob Mills’ features?
Yes, absolutely. The propor tio ns of the facade have
a rhythm and symmetry. The structure is quite
formal, but we have dressed it down in a casual
material. We have created a ver y sophisticated-
looking house that is ‘cool’ and that everyone is
proud to be living in, but at the same time it
is laid back and unconstrained.
What are the advantages of being both the
interior designe r and the architect? This project
is on e of the fi rst examples we’ve created that is
monochromatic. I was committed to maintaining
an essen tially grey colo ur palette by sticking with
glass, aluminium and concrete throughout the
ho me. The sol ution stems from ou r belief that
the landscape architectu re an d interior are o ne.

“We needed to make sure we had sufficient bedrooms
and living areas to fit plenty of kids. A big part of going
on holiday in places like Sorrento is having your friends
and family come down and stay.”

on from its inside counterpart.
