Established in Saint-Paul since 1968, Robert Dallas builds houses in the Proven├žal style adapted to the modern living. He also designs projects elsewhere in the world

In 1966, at the age of just 23, Robert Dallas had just been offered a partnership at the London Stock Exchange, but a chance trip to Provence changed his future in an instant. He fell in love with the beauty of the region and its traditional Mediterranean stone farmhouses.
Whilst staying with some of his former colleagues who owned homes in and around Saint-Paul-de-Vence, he began collecting the rough hewn stones, ancient wooden beams, and handmade tiles discarded by builders who were demolishing old ruins in the area.
Dallas went on to build new houses with these reclaimed materials, creating homes that were traditional in appearance, yet designed for modern living. Today, he is one of the most highly regarded architects in Provence, whose homes are sought by discerning customers throughout the world.
