Mira Mui, AIA, LEED AP BD+C
Associate | Architect
Mira Mui’s decade-long experience spans a diverse range of architectural typologies, including historic preservation, custom residential, and commercial and healthcare tenant improvement. For the past seven years, Mira has been perfecting her experience as a Multifamily Project Architect working on a range of projects from small, eight-unit apartments, to supporting the 400+ unit Capitol Hill TOD project.
Adept at rising to the challenges of dual Project Manager and Architect roles, Mira enjoys collaborating on all phases of a project. Her experience with permitting and entitlement processes is extensive, particularly with the City of Seattle, and she has completed presentation packages for Landmark Preservation Boards and Design Review Boards with an eye for curating presentations for board approvals. Mira is well-versed in permit and construction documents for multiple project types and is efficient and methodical in her production of both small over-the-counter permits and large multi-disciplinary coordination projects.
Her interests in sustainable design are focused on understanding embodied energy of existing elements, and conveying the hard-to-quantify benefits of sustainable buildings, such as cultural significance and social capital. Mira is passionate about building reuse in all its forms, from historic preservation to adaptive reuse to material recycling. She also believes in the primordial importance of energy reduction and is studying to become a Certified Passive House Consultant. She is currently a LEED AP BD+C and received her architectural license in 2017.
Mira holds a Master of Architecture (2012) and Bachelor of Science in Architecture with a Minor in Construction Engineering and Management (2011) from McGill University in Montreal, an AEC-industry comprehensive degree that allows her to address project-related issues from multiple perspectives.
Outside of the studio, you will find Mira spending time outdoors with her family and terrier mix pup, sipping coffee or Lychee Rose Boba Tea, and contemplating what DIY to tackle next on her cabin in Central Washington.
