Miller Company Landscape Architects, Inc. offers creative and functional design solutions for every major type of open space development. Established in 1980, we work with a broad range of project types including schools, parks, mixed use/multi-family housing, urban spaces, corporate campuses, non profit service organizations, and private gardens. We create outdoor environments that engage users and support the ecological health of the natural surroundings.
We address the constraints of climate and environmental conditions as opportunities for innovative landscape design. Our projects have been recognized internationally for LEED certified sustainable design solutions. Miller Company has received awards from the American Society of Landscape Architects, the American Institute of Architects, US Green Building Conference and other notable organizations. Our projects often incorporate rooftop terraces and green roof design for rainwater capture/irrigation and reduced heat absorption. We design stormwater solutions and highlight them as important visual elements and our team uses drought tolerant and native plantings whenever possible.
Of particular merit has been our involvement with the sensitive resolution of community needs. Miller Company has worked extensively with public agencies, non-profit organizations, and community groups to design intimate spaces that honor the history of the site. We host workshops and presentations to foster a dialogue with the neighborhood’s residents, young and old, and brainstorm ideals and solutions. We often collaborate with artists and arts organizations to bring unique elements to public spaces. Our school projects, which range from pre-school to college level, focus on nature-based playgrounds, unique gathering areas to encourage interaction, and outdoor learning gardens for growing flowers and vegetables.
