Philip Keil + Troy Miller

By Talk Design

September 12, 2022


With degrees in both industrial engineering and architecture, Philip loves the left brain / right brain thinking inherent in architectural design: exploring the natural tensions between function and beauty, balancing pragmatic concerns like gravity and waterproofing with artful composition of materials, light, and texture.

Philip is happiest when his hands and mind are busy in a creative endeavor: sketching, cooking, gardening, or tinkering in the shop on a woodworking or metalworking project. He loves the pace and rhythm of engaging the world on foot, whether exploring the world’s great cities, stretching his eyes on an alpine hike, or meeting neighbors while walking the dog. He also has an acknowledged “volunteering problem,” serving on way too many boards and committees and giving out wristbands at ACL tapings. He’s studying French in hopes of returning to live in Paris.


An Austinite since 1995, Troy grew up outside of Dallas and ventured south to study at UT Austin. With almost 20 years of architectural experience including residential, hospitality, planning and development, historic preservation, and construction consulting work under his belt, Troy contributes his strong design sensibilities (and unfailing sarcasm) to almost every project in the office. He is particularly interested in the expression of materiality and detailing. Outside of the office, Troy enjoys traveling with his wife and son and spending time outdoors.
