    For a major rebuild project the relationship with your architect is vital. We had a vision and budget but did not have the architectural skills needed to make it all happen. Russell was immediately responsive to our ideas and at the same time out a unique slant on the project due to his wide experience working with historic buildings. It was also an advantage that he worked in both London & Cornwall as he brought local knowledge and perspective combined with a broader view having worked on projects in many geographical locations. He was very helpful in all the negotiations with English Heritage and our local listed buildings officer. Its also all about teamwork and Silvia and Faisal gave splendid back up and were always responsive in a timely fashion. They also were able to provide advice regarding suppliers and contractors from experience with previous projects. Unfortunately, our builders went bankrupt at  the final stage of the project, nothing to so with us!, so we are not completely finished but hope to be so in the next few weeks. However, the end result is amazing and I would have no hesitation in recommending Russell and his team, in fact we have already done so to other friends and they have taken him on for a similar renovation project.”

    I have to thank Russell Taylor Architects for the successful refurbishment work that was carried out on my Grade II listed home. I was particularly impressed by their knowledge and skills relating to older buildings, as well as their thoroughness and dependability. silvia and Russell were easy to talk with, explaining each stage of the renovation in a clear and precise manner and were always at the other end of the phone, if i had concerns. I am very pleased with the end result, they have turned a tired building into a beautiful home, highlighting and bringing back to life its original character. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone who had a property that needed renovating.

    Extension and Refurbishment of semi-detached villa

    “We worked with Russell Taylor Architects for around 2 years through the design, planning and build of our semi-detached villa restoration and extension. The planning process was handled professionally and successfully due to their expert knowledge of these conservation buildings. They were instrumental in finding us an excellent team of builders and the project went as efficiently and we could have hoped. They brought expertise and knowledge far beyond out scope of design and we were able to use modern technology and incorporate these features without losing the period style we had come to love. We learned so much with the team at Russell Taylor Architects, they are experts in their field. They often used hand drawn ideas which enabled us to be much more creative than the usual CAD only skilled architect. We would have no reservation in recommending them to anyone interested in good design and style.”
