Foundational to our culture is a passion for making a difference. Fueled by curious people who thrive on mutual respect and exploration.
Want to be part of a practice dedicated to affecting change? We actively seek team members and interns at all levels of experience who share these values and enjoy an open and collaborative environment.
We welcome the energy and perspective of student interns in both studios and provide ‘hands-on’ exposure to a variety of experiences that broaden design and professional skills.

The legacy of David Miller and Robert Hull’s experience in the Peace Corps laid the foundation for our firm’s ongoing service to our communities. We actively share our time, resources and expertise with a range of design, community and environmentally-oriented organizations.
As an early signatory to this AIA program that seeks transformation of the built environment through greenhouse gas emission reductions, Miller Hull has designed many buildings that exceed this standard.
As part of Miller Hull’s ongoing participation in the AIA 2030 Commitment, we collect and report the the estimated energy reduction from each of our projects annually. The goal of the challenge is to design buildings that are carbon-neutral by the year 2030. While we are are not yet meeting the Challenge, we are steadily improving our performance each year in pursuit of the target reduction.
Miller Hull tracks our annual progress towards meeting the 2030 carbon-neutral goal to ensure our energy performance is trending in the right direction. With the dotted orange line representing our total project square footage designed each year, you can see that although our amount of area we design increases, so does our energy reduction.
At Miller Hull, our commitment to sustainability extends beyond design – we believe transparency in our efforts will keep us accountable and inspire others to join our journey. To that end, we have made our Sustainability Action Plan public at the link below and will continually track and report our performance so that others may learn from our attempts.
The goals, objectives and strategies outlined in this document embody our firm’s values and represent our commitment to be rigorous in everything we do. Through our design work and in our office operations, we are accountable for, and continually improve toward, each goal.
We welcome your suggestions and feedback as we strive to continuously improve.
Our commitment to sustainability in our project work extends to our office operations as well. Since we completely offset our carbon footprint every year, we must track our operations to continually improve our reduction and hold ourselves accountable.
We purchase Carbon Offsets supporting renewable energy sources like solar and wind power to completely offset the annual environmental impact of our business footprint.
We are members of this organization committed to improvement of the building industry’s transparency and innovation for a more accurate, reliable and consistent reporting of product contents and related health information.
From participation in the Living Future unConference, to achieving the Living Building Challenge performance standard with the Bullitt Center, and as recipients of the JUST social justice label, we are closely aligned with ILFI goals to move toward communities that are socially just, culturally rich and ecologically restorative.
We are recent recipients of the JUST label–a social justice transparency platform and disclosure tool of the International Living Future Institute providing at-a-glance information in key social justice categories such as diversity, equity, safety, employee benefit, local benefit and community stewardship.

As part of our Sustainability Action Plan (Objective B.1: Design to achieve the LBC Materials Petal) Miller Hull is committed to removing six Red List chemicals from our projects, beginning in 2017. The document below provides data to help our staff educate clients, peers, and partners on the scientifically-based rationale behind removing these chemicals of concern. We hope you find it equally useful as part of your own materials journey.
Donating services enables us to share thoughtful design time and expertise to those in need or who share a common mission supporting progressive environmentalism and social causes. Many opportunities have come our way as a result of employee connections.
One percent or more of our annual working hours are donated to pro bono architecture design services for nonprofit organizations.
Recent projects include:
Deep green design services to non-profit organizations with strong social and environmental missions.
Our partners honor their alma maters through endowed scholarships awarded annually to design students (administered by each university on our behalf).
