Miles Architectural Group
Miles Architectural Group (MAG) is a small full service firm established in 1998 that provides custom residential design services to clients requiring a higher level of design, attention and management expertise. The founding principal of the firm has been creating architecture for the past 20 years and provides services to clients in Nevada and California. The responsibility of this firm is very much about defining and responding to the needs of the client. It is important to not overlook the basic facts, be insensitive, or misinterpret any of the elements that define the project. Having the ability to be a good listener and applying common sense logic is fundamental in designing projects that possess an aesthetic presence, create a sense of place, and that resolve and respond to the clients needs. The development of practical and functional design that compliments our lives and interacts with all of the influences of our surroundings is essential. Emphasizing curious inquiry and having the good sense, courage and respect to listen, give the Architect the power to create architecture that establishes the clients place.
