    Mr. Alfaz Miller

    Principal Architect & Company Director

    "what I respond to is the scope to attempt something new, where there is a clear client's brief, but without endless interference."

    After graduating from Bombay University with a B. Arch, Alfaz Miller started his practice in 1972. Alfaz is at home at both ends of the architectural spectrum from small projects which are composed with careful artistry to a highly specialized vocabulary of interior design. He is now working extensively on medium and large architectural projects for private individuals, corporates and institutions. As Alfaz enters his quiet elegant office in Studio Millernium, it hums with high-octane energy, perfectly in keeping with the high-tech corporate projects. The firm specializes in the architecture of private houses, and his office mirrors this interest, with its division into intimate seating and work areas, and his collection of art and vintage cars.
