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.”

“This was a major project (over £1 million) and Russell was clear sighted throughout about the huge potential of the property. All his ideas gelled into producing a harmonious whole. Sensitive to the views of his client but provides excellent independent advice. Terrific attention to detail from initial drawings to supervision of the builder. Planning Permission was expected to be a problem but his creativity and focus on the issue secured a successful result. If we could not envisage his idea he would create a model of life size drawings which were hugely helpful.
Established a good professional relationship with the builder but was quick to spot even small issues which were corrected in good time. He finished two years ago but we still say how lucky we were to find him.”
NEW CORNISH VILLA
“This was a complicated assignment requiring to houses to be joined. We were looking for an architect with a vision of what the whole would look like. We chose Russell Taylor because we were impressed with their flair and design skills. We were also impressed with how they were able to work with our ideas and translate and mould them into the overall plans. The firm greatly surpassed our high expectations. Their drawings were very imaginative and exciting. They spent a lot of time on site and their sharp eyes spotted any short cuts the builders took. Equally they were pragmatic with regard to any building difficulties encountered by the builders and structural surveyors. We were delighted with Russell Taylor’s work from first to last. This house is a monument to a superb architect and a very good builder.”
