MILLER ARCHITECTURE and PLANNING
DIRECTOR OF DESIGN
James’ approach to design is as unique as his background. Before joining MAP in 2007, he worked installing custom furniture he’d designed and fabricated, held positions in theater set design and construction, prop and costume design, worked at an interior design firm, even taught courses on Interior Design at a University. While earning multiple degrees in Art, Education, and Design, his journey has included working in construction, as an independent subcontractor and with a large company, gaining hands-on experience with everything from structural concrete and framing to fine finishes and detailed custom mill work. His other artistic endeavors include graphic design and website design, wall murals, character illustrations for children's books and video games, and numerous commissioned portraits, but only the challenges of architecture and interior design can allow him to merge all these perspectives and create unique works of art that people can fully experience.
As Project Manager, Stephanie draws on her industry experience of more than twenty five years, including running her own construction company, to bring vital perspective to each project. She has designed and built everything from retail to restaurants, to public projects in town squares, to manufacturing and industrial complexes, to private custom homes. Her dad was a career soldier, so this “Army-Brat” has seen a lot of the country, attending both Sun Prairie High School in Wisconsin and Gulf Coast Community College in Panama City, Florida. Earning certification in Architectural Drafting at West Georgia Technical College, Stephanie is now a member of WGTC advisory committee.
Terry Miller received his Bachelor’s degree in Architectural Studies from the University of Pittsburgh in 1985 followed by a Masters of Architecture from Syracuse University. He has been a licensed architect since 1996. He moved to Georgia in 1997 and worked at the Project Management level in several Atlanta architectural firms before starting his own practice, Miller Architecture and Planning, in 2004 and locating it in downtown Douglasville the following year. Terry is a member of the American Institute of Architects, NCARB certified and licensed in 7 states (GA, AL, FL, NC, SC, PA and NJ). He and his firm have designed projects of just about every building type imaginable, including houses, shopping centers, car dealerships, medical offices, hotels, and many other categories. Some of his most notable local projects include the Historic Building Occupied by the City of Douglasville Welcome Center which is next to the recently renovated O'neal PLaza and (State-wide award-winning) O'Neal Plaza stage cover. Even the balcony and second floor renovation in the adjacent Historic Irish Bred Pub was designed and completed under Miller Architecture and Planning's guidance. Terry has served as the past chairman of the Downtown Douglasville Development Authority and was elected to the Douglasville City Council in 2007 serving through 2011 and elected to another term in 2017. He is a past member of the board of directors of the Cultural Arts Council of Douglasville and currently serves on the Lithia Springs High School STEM Advisory Board, the WellStar Douglas Regional Board, and the Atlanta Regional Commission’s Livable Cities Initiative Committee.
