Stephen Taylor Architects are an award winning RIBA Chartered practice that work both domestically and internationally to produce high quality contemporary buildings and urbanism. Stephen Taylor leads the London-based office since 1993. With a continuing commitment to architecture’s social dimension, as well as its capacity for artistic and cultural expression, Stephen Taylor Architects recognize the collective process by which buildings and cities are made as part of an ongoing economic, social and cultural continuum. Amongst their interests are a strong concern for the direct emotional effect that architecture can have through its physical and pictorial presence, material association and constructional directness. An architecture that can be consensual whilst catalytic, mundane yet dramatic. They are committed to the craft of sustainable construction and the research of new technologies in pursuit of making buildings that fulfil not only the clients’ expectations of space, light and air, but also economic and efficient procurement and environmental responsibility.
Happel Cornelisse Verhoeven have collaborated with Stephen Taylor Architects on two residential buildings in the Cadix district in Antwerp.
