The Practice

Russell Taylor Architects specialises in Classical and traditional design. Our work encompasses historic architecture, traditional construction, conservation, Classical buildings and interior design.

Our main studio is in London, with a satellite office in Cornwall. The practice undertakes the full range of architectural services on projects ranging from large to small, priding itself on excellent design and the careful management of contracts.

We deliver a personal, attentive service working closely with our clients in order to meet their needs and realise their aspirations. It is our core belief that the values of Classicism remain relevant and that applied with skill and flair, they produce beautiful, sustainable buildings suitable for all uses. We have an award-winning record applying these principles to new buildings, refurbishments, extensions and interiors.
