Welcome Back, Jonathan Miller—Now Principal Leading North Carolina’s Health Practice

Jonathan Miller has re-joined our Perkins&Will family to oversee the design and delivery of a strong portfolio of healthcare projects. Jonathan worked in our New York studio in the late 1990s and has more than 25 years of extensive experience in the field. He has partnered with some of the country’s most acclaimed health and wellness institutions.

During his two decades in New York City, Jonathan mastered the art of designing sophisticated, healing environments despite having limited space. He is also particularly skilled at transforming aging healthcare facilities into state-of-the-art destinations for care.



“For many years, I thought I would follow in my grandfather’s footsteps as a physician, but after having visited architectural works by Frank Lloyd Wright and Louis Kahn, I couldn’t resist the draw of architecture. I’m thrilled to be able to combine two of my passions—design and healthcare—and delighted to return to the Perkins&Will family in N.C.” —Jonathan Miller

“We’re honored to have Jonathan as a part of our team,” said Zena Howard, principal and managing director of the North Carolina practice. “His passion for design that inspires wellness, as well as his experience specifically with healthcare districts, will be invaluable to the communities we serve.”

In addition to his work in healthcare, Miller has led design projects for clients across a wide range of market sectors, including aviation, commercial development, education, entertainment, hospitality, and commercial interiors. His work has been recognized by the American Institute of Architects’ (AIA) New York, Baltimore, and California chapters.

For more than five years, Miller co-chaired the AIA New York’s Design for Health Committee (formerly Health Facilities Committee), an organizational voice comprised of architects and healthcare industry partners that provides thought leadership programs and guidelines for planning, design, and construction of healthcare facilities. He holds a Master of Architecture and a Bachelor of Architecture from Tulane University.
