“We’d like to tell you that We are very satisfied and love all of the architectural details you designed for us, they are so classic and timeless. You have supported us throughout the construction of this project. Whenever our family think about the renovation of our house, we are filled with gratefulness for your help. We have made the right choice to have you as our architect. We are also deeply moved by Silvia’s commitment, professional devotion and dedication to our project. We would love to have you drop by and have a cup of tea anytime you are convenient or happen to be in the neighbourhood.”

Orangery for a Country Villa
Dear Russell, I wanted to write and let you know we have now furnished the Orangery and are enjoying using it. It has completely changed the orientation of the house and it has been a delight it sits there. The views over the garden are fantastic. So far it has been wonderfully cool in the heat. We are using the terrace all day long. Quite right the Orangery has attracted much praise with many favourable comments”.

Family Home Refurbishment in Greenwich
“We went to the RIBA website and made a shortlist of people who did the sort of project we were undertaking. We Knew from the Russell Taylor Architects website that Russell was good at old buildings, and ours is an old building. Russell has a very calming approach. He is unflappable! His knowledge and understanding of the Listed Building rules and how they are/should be applied was absolutely vital. The usually very difficult Conservation Officers at Greenwich Council bowed to his expertise. We also greatly appreciated help prom the practice with working out how to create enough bathrooms and how to get pipes to be invisible and lead to one wall where we have downpipes. Without Russell’s very practical mind the builder would have got us to have an awful macerator toilet; after this example of lateral thinking my husband and I felt empowered to approach the project with this same problem-solving attitude, which was a useful thing to learn “
