Fawkner House by Rob Mills Architecture & Interiors
Timothy Kaye

Rob Mills Architecture & Interiors has created a collection of nine large-scale apartments in celebration of progressive architecture in one of Melbourne’s most exclusive suburbs.


The project is located in the Domain Precinct, and pays homage to Le Corbusier’s 1954 chapel Notre Dame du Haut in Ronchamp, France, through its combination of organic mass, distinctive form and spatial diversity. The result is a celebration of openness that includes innovative light wells, a double-height foyer and expansive flowing spaces.

The building’s form is overtly sculptural, defined by curved features that rise up and draw light within. A signature use of curves continues inside, allowing sunlight to flow unimpeded through large volumes of space and across handcrafted finishes.

Every decision was made to heighten the senses and create a sanctuary in order to go beyond functional apartment design and traditional luxury, thereby creating not only a better quality home, but a better quality of life.


This project has been longlisted in the housing project category of Dezeen Awards 2022.
