Approach / Process

Architecture and design has the capacity to enrich and transform the lives of people. That’s why we love it.

Our designs are about our clients and so each project starts with a conversation. We want to learn and understand who is commissioning the project; their likes and dislikes, needs and wants, aspirations and reality checks. Conversations mature and evolve into diagrams, sketches and models, finally arriving at fully documented construction drawings.

No matter the scale or budget, each project we accept is approached with enthusiasm, intensity and commitment. Through planning and rigorous exploration, we test and push our ideas to not only exceed our client’s expectations, but also our own.

Service

Taylor Knights offers a full architectural service: from sketch design to council approvals, design development, construction documentation, tendering and contract administration. Our construction and interior design skills are always considered, and applied appropriately across each of our projects. We use both traditional and contemporary design and documentation techniques. Combining the skill of hand drawings and traditional model making techniques alongside the latest in 2D, 3D AND BIM (Building Information Modelling) modelling. This process ensures our clients can clearly visualize our design response and are up to date and across all areas of the project.

Clients / Collaboration

Great projects are a collaboration of ideas, thoughts and discussions that evolve and develop through the coming together of a common purpose and passion. We pride ourselves on being able to collaborate. Our projects are never single-handed, they are multi-disciplinary and represent the coming together of clients, consultants and contractors who work together towards creating the best design solution.

Budget

We believe a budget is simply an opportunity to think smart. A building’s character will be defined by the limitations of the designer, not the budget: outstanding effects can be achieved with materials that are involving rather than expensive, and through the clever use of spatial planning, volume and light.

Sustainability

Passive design principles are fundamental to our practice of architecture and design. We incorporate Ecologically Sustainable Design (ESD) into all aspects of our projects, from our initial placement of the building and the building envelope all the way through to the building services and the surrounding landscape.
