“Mike took our stagnated project, simplified it, gave it some life and took us beyond the design stage. Mike is particularly adept at identifying the hurdles, obligations and requirements we as a client don’t even know exist and steering us through them.”
“Mike and his team provide us excellent advice and service on both both design and architectural matters.
They are quick to respond and understand what we are trying to achieve.
They deal with Local Authorities professionally but are also robust and challenging when they need to be to gain the necessary permissions on our behalf.”
“Mike was very helpful to me and as well as drawing up what I wanted he also helped me in acquiring a builder who has turned out to be as good as Mike said. So if you want help not only in the planning but also finding someone to carry out the work Mike has a list of good builders, which you can believe.”
“Mike is an extremely competent, professional and knowledgeable architect who has given me great advice with regards to planning consent for my Grade II listed house. He manages to take the worry out of stressful situations and has succeeded in getting all my planning approved. I would not hesitate to use him again or recommend him to others.”
“My wife and I met Mike in 2016 after almost giving up all hope on finding an architect that listened to what we wanted and then making it better, instead of us accepting what they wanted us to do.
It was like a breath of life in our moment of giving up and selling the house.
Mike Completely understood our ideas and made them work, but he did this in a way that exceeded what we we originally wanted and at the same time we got exactly what we asked for (if this makes sense)
We own a grade II listed Georgian townhouse so we had a lot of constraints on what we could do and materials we could use, on the other hand our budget wasn’t as big as what it should have been.
We originally had a galley kitchen running off the back of house which was horrible and the only bathroom was on the 3rd floor. Mike proposed to knock down the kitchen completely and add on a 40m2 kitchen and a two story side extension to the property adding on an extra bathroom and WC.
It was a risk putting this forward for planning and listed building consent but afterwards we were informed that the planning committee had said that the design we put forward was probably the best design they had approved in the last 3 years. They said that the design made the house look better and at the same time in keeping with the age and style of the house.
To cut a long story short. If you need an architect for anything you need only ring Mike from Taylor & co. You will never regret it.”
“I have worked with Mike and his team on numerous projects over the last 7 years.
These vary from small extensions to large high spec new builds
It’s a pleasure to work alongside Mike due to his attention to detail, clear and concise information and friendly manner.
I would highly recommend Mike and the team to anyone seeking assistance with their project”
