ABM Architects is a Mumbai based Architecture & Interior Design Firm. Alfaz Miller co-founded the Firm in 1972, and is the Principal Architect. The Firm has evolved with changing times and has a young work force, guided by experienced professionals in the core team.
ABM's wide experience spans major institutional and corporate projects, private buildings, offices, airports, hotels, health and residential spaces. The firm enjoys a reputation for architecture and design solutions that are responsive, client-focused, comprehensive, and most importantly, varied. Every ABM creation aims to integrate a timeless aesthetic with functional design, an objective that has been at the core of the firm’s culture since its inception.
We have consciously chosen to remain a boutique design firm undertaking selected projects at a time. This helps us stay focused on the work at hand, be demanding about quality, pay attention to detail and be available to the client at all times.
ABM’s design excellence has been acclaimed by the many awards and citations it has received. Client satisfaction has always been the firm's principle objective - its success measured by the fact that 80% of ABMs projects originate from loyal clients.
The firm listens to and evaluates wide-ranging ideas from the client, the project team and the consultants. This is made possible by ABM’s a highly-efficient infrastructure within its own six-storeyed office building at the heart of the city, which houses multiple teams working collaboratively on several projects.
The skilled and collaborative workforce of 50 in-house architects, designers and engineers, is well-supported by competent structural and service consultants. ABM’s in-house MEPF (Mechanical, Engineering, Plumbing and Firefighting) team work closely with the architects and interior designers to deliver comprehensive services to each project.
Our offices also house fine artist Brinda Miller's studio, as well the Miller family’s vast personal collection of art. Brinda Miller advises clients on the purchase and commissioning of sculptures, artworks and installations from a vast selection of artists.
ABM's approach to design involves four basic steps:
Understanding the requirements of the clients
Development of the design
Integration of design with engineering principles
Project supervision and efficient execution
We understand that every job is unique in size, budget and constraints, and thus requires an individual approach. This knowledge is embedded in the firm's creative ability and technical expertise, from the concept to the construction stages of each project.
We provide the following services:
Alfaz Miller established ABM Architects soon after achieving his Bachelor of Architecture from JJ School of Art in 1972. The firm has grown from a 70-square-foot one-man office to a 7,000-square-foot building at the center of Mumbai. Miller’s proficient design skills, grounded ethics, and sharp business acumen, continue to define his self-sufficient firm - which possesses all capabilities required for transforming ideas on paper, into brick-and-mortar realities.
As Alfaz enters his elegant and eclectic workplace in Studio Millernium, Mumbai, it hums with high-octane energy, perfectly in keeping with his approach to every project. One of the firm’s many specialties is residential architecture, and his office mirrors this expertise, with its division into intimate seating and work areas – all designed for close collaboration and the open exchange of ideas, and Alfaz’s collection of art and vintage cars.
Alfaz is at comfortable working on both ends of the design spectrum - small projects which are composed with careful artistry to a highly specialized vocabulary of interior design to medium and large architectural projects for individuals, corporations, and institutions.
As principal architect of an award-winning firm, Alfaz Miller himself is the recipient of several accolades and awards. He is driven by the constant desire to leave a mark on the architectural skyline; and his work is a constant reminder that design is still his true calling.
