The idea for what would become The Miller Hull Partnership started in villages of Brazil and Afghanistan
Miller Hull founders David Miller and Robert Hull began by designing many award winning earth sheltered and solar buildings in the early 1980’s. The tradition of designing dynamic and environmentally sensitive buildings continues to this day.
The powerful landscape of the Pacific Northwest profoundly influenced the founding partners. Our enduring perspective on architecture deals intimately with the human impact and context of the buildings we design.
From the beginning, sustainability has been a foundational value of Miller Hull. While we have considered the principles of natural forces and systems of the earth since our very first project, we continue to evolve with broadening sustainability concepts and increasing scientific knowledge.
We begin with passive strategies, ensuring every design complements their natural surroundings to deliver efficient and comfortable environments. Through an integrated process, we employ renewable strategies that translate nature’s energy to build exactly what our clients need.
In addition to designing ecologically, our own operations reflect those principles as well. We are a carbon-neutral firm that provides comfortable, daylit and Red List-free studios for our staff and we support numerous causes in the name of sustainability and environmental efforts.
Our passion for sustainability and the culmination of all these efforts has led to seven AIA Committee on the Environment Awards and being recognized as the 2018 Top Firm for Sustainability by Architect Magazine.
Regenerative Design and Performanc
We have proven through our work that buildings can and should be better stewards of nature. With each project, we strive to tread lightly on natural resources while restoring past exploitation efforts. Above all, our spaces must be comfortable and enjoyable places for people.
Our Sustainability Action Plan implements our long-term goal that all buildings will: Target Net Positive Energy (Objective A.1), Target Net Positive Water (Objective A.2) and Contribute to Site Restoration (Objective A.3). Through this plan, we utilize strategies that go beyond code requirements and best practices to build truly regenerative architecture.
More demanding than conventional structures, buildings targeting net zero or net positive energy and water goals bring an added level of complexity to the design process. The results are buildings with exemplary energy performance and water efficiency that are healthier and uplifting for their occupants.
The realities of global climate change are already upon us and they impact all locations differently. Designing buildings that last a lifetime and are resilient to weather,…
