Founded by Christopher Taylor and Tim Hare, TaylorHare Architects is currently a team of architects and designers spread across three studios, one in rural Kent, another in the heart of Bristol and a satellite office in Aarhus, Denmark.

House In A Clearing

City as a Stage – A Feasibility Study for a new type of community led residential development on the periphery of the American ‘music city’ of Nashville, Tennessee

After seeing a truly amazing performance, usually all we can remember is a feeling: a sentiment of awe ingrained into our minds that lasts much longer than our visual...

House in a Clearing – Work Commences on Site

Three Tiered House

Pre-app: Ad hoc farmhouse Pre-application planning advice with the local authority has been an integral part of the design process, particularly for our heritage projects - but for how long? This early engagement with the local borough councils is a good opportunity to present the team's initial findings, analysis and vision. This...

Reference: Re-Imagining Ramsgate This week we have been reflecting on the scale of Ramsgate’s Port & Harbour. The aerial images of cities have been taken from Google Earth at a constant eye altitude of 1.5km, giving us an approximate comparable scale. Some of the cities have grown slow, some exceedingly fast - the...

These buildings, are naturally workmanlike, requiring them to be robust, resourceful and adaptable. Whilst in their materiality they harness a modesty, a simplicity in their craft....

Site: Plan Geometry Catcost has been a test bed for breaking the mould; reserved and familiar on the outside, but full of surprises within. A diagonal mirror line breaks the plan, from which we are bounced on our movement around the house. The internal functions are contextually programmed by access, solar...

Craft: Model Making Interacting tangibly with our sites at scale provides a haptic channel in to the process of their reimagining. Additionally, physical models are useful props in design reviews with clients and consultants - they are easier to read for people without continued experience of 2D drawings. A mindfulness of the lay...

Build: Tabula Rasa Our persuasion towards materials of modularity, robustness and relatively low cost was once entangled directly with their derivative agricultural contexts. The economic fluctuations of the past two years have been unprecedented circumstances in which to undertake new build projects; the rising cost of materials continues to be one...
