Malcolm Taylor and Associates

Contemporary, artful, interactive & accessible. Exuberant, interiors-focused, friendly & comprehensive.

Established in 1997, Malcolm Taylor and Associates has evolved into a versatile practice taking on a broad range of projects. Over the past 20 years we have developed a personal design process with an open, transparent, communicative interface with clients. This allows a casual, yet in-depth level of explorative thought.

Our aim is to empower our clients with an early insight into the modelling of their project by allowing open access to the modelling process. This in turn creates greater understanding and trust in the design process. Coupled with a cost check process, at an early stage, in order to balance the brief with the Budget. We understand the gravity of this process for our clients & spend as much time as necessary talking about the steps ahead & how best to achieve the identified goals.

We enjoy working on a range of briefs: Commercial projects for office & workplace, cafes, heritage buildings, hospitality, private homes and interior projects.
