Architecture + Design
Aahana Miller is enforcing the legacy of ABM Architects with her technology-driven approach to design.
HER DESIGN PHILOSOPHY IS ECHOED IN BUNGALOW AT JAJPUR AND BANGALORE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT T1 DOMESTIC LOUNGE, WHERE THE USE OF COLOUR AND A COMBINATION OF ECLECTIC MATERIALS WITH WOOD BRINGS IN A BEAUTIFUL BLEND OF TRADITIONAL INDIAN AESTHETICS WITH MODERN SENSIBILITIES.
Aahana Miller is the Principal Architect at ABM working with her father Alfaz Miller, designing a wide range of commercial, residential, retail and institutional projects. She completed her Master of Architecture at The University of Pennsylvania (PennDesign) with a Minor in Historic Preservation. This complemented her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Interior Architecture from Rhode Island School of Design, which focused on adaptive re-use. At PennDesign she was the Director for
Penn Student Design, liaising with graphic designers to produce creative materials for various marketing projects. She was also the Chair of PennDesign’s Women in Architecture group, an organization that aims to increase the incidence and visibility of women in the architectural profession.
With her experience in Fine Arts and Graphic Design, Aahana brings some freshness to the style ABM has been known for. She not only handles the day-to-day workings of the office, she has also been key in bringing new technologies and software to the firm such as parametric modelling and fabrication techniques. She strives to incorporate a unique amalgam of her Indian roots as well as her contemporary education into her design style, aiming to synergize an eastern cultural ethos with modern living. Her design philosophy is echoed in Bungalow at Jajpur and Bangalore International Airport T1 Domestic Lounge, where the use of colour and a combination of eclectic materials with wood brings in a beautiful blend of traditional Indian aesthetics with modern sensibilities.
