A Collaborative Process of Discovery

The Mills Group is an extraordinary blend of like-minded professionals who bring their very best to work on a daily basis. Together, we believe that a successful engagement is a collaborative one. That's why we've based our design approach on research, data collection, client interaction, and original solutions. Founded in 2005, we maintain a clear vision for the design of new structures that encompass rich architectural character of the past. We execute site plans that account for the opportunities and challenges of every project, including spatial constraints, client desires, and limited budgets. Our unique experiences with each project have led to new discoveries that benefit our clients and enlighten our ways of thinking.
