The Firm


Taylor Hazell Architects Ltd. (THA) was founded in 1991 to address architecture, conservation and strategic planning for existing sites and structures. We have an inter-disciplinary office that includes architects, historians, cultural resource managers and support staff. We believe that good architecture stems from a harmony of environment, context, and diverse human use. We do our best work using new form, space, materials and technology in places where culture, landscape, and buildings are open to change through compatible alterations and additions. Design excellence is our continuous goal, starting with planning, and one that we diligently pursue through every stage of the project.


Studio Life

THA is a dynamic and fast-paced office and our practice often extends from the studio walls into the field. We take time to enjoy each other’s company, often attending industry events and celebrating this diverse group!


THA is a collaborative environment. Our open studio lends itself to the sharing of ideas and we truly embrace the team approach to problem solving. Our clients see us as strong project leaders, communicators and team builders and we are committed to building long-term relationships with them.
