Alistair McMillan

Managing Partner

“An architectural value should also be a human value, with the ultimate purpose being the improvement of peoples’ lives.”

Alistair McMillan arrived at BSBG in 1995, and immediately began to instil his vision for a practice that would go on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing city of Dubai. At an early stage he introduced the BSBG design philosophy – that great architecture comes from understanding the client, the end user and a responsibility to produce enduring, timeless design. 

With Alistair as the driving force, BSBG has emerged to become a highly respected international architectural practice, and a trusted collaborator on projects for numerous long-term clients. The journey began in Dubai; one of the most demanding markets in global construction, and has spread to Asia and Europe under his direction. In each of these territories BSBG has built its reputation based on the principles and standards Alistair has developed.

His design principles stem from firstly gaining a unique depth of understanding for what the client’s project aspirations are. With a preference for uncomplicated, clean design and a focus on detail and solid delivery, Alistair demands the highest level of understanding and performance from his team; placing his trust in them to carry BSBG forward, ensure his design principles are retained, and provide a consistently first-class suite of architectural solutions.
