MICA is made up of a highly talented group of individuals who share a commitment to high quality design. Combining extensive experience alongside young gifted people, we offer our team opportunities to develop and become integral in shaping the future success of the office. Many of our staff have grown with the team, and our senior staff have benefited from this approach.

Our Office

Located on Camden High Street, we occupy two former dance and billiard halls in an original Burtons art deco building. Our open plan office is bathed in natural light from roof lights, and our sheltered, sunny garden provides a serene contrast to the busy high street. 

Our teams work in a flexible studio environment, benefiting from in-house expertise in architecture, urban design, conservation architecture & landscape with designated project teams focusing on specific tasks.

Our in-house model room allows us to produce working and presentation models using both traditional techniques as well as 3D printing and lasercutting. We also do our own in house publishing for documents and brochures, and have an extensive library of books and materials in a quiet corner overlooking the office garden.

MICA supports the growth and continued development of our team through a peer mentoring programme, a regular CPD programme, site visits to projects, office forums presented by our colleagues, and yearly trips to different European cities. 

Our Name

We thought a lot about what we would call the new practice.

We picked MICA because we liked the simplicity of it. It comes from our surnames, Miller and Cade : MI-ller CA-de.

Having individual names being part of a collective entity is also about our team. We want it to give room for people to grow into and develop.

Phonetically it is [mahy-kuh] or it might be easier as [my- ka]

We are practice partners for the Architecture Review’s Women in Architecture partnership and have our own internal Equality Forum that recognises and promotes the achievements of women and minorities within the profession. We are also working with the Stephen Lawrence Building Futures Programme to provide mentoring and support to young people from disadvantaged backgrounds and underrepresented groups who wish to study and qualify as architects. We also host work experience students from different backgrounds who have an interest in architecture.
