OWL Architects is an RIBA Chartered Practice offering design and project management services that grew out of the successful practice of Tayler and Green Architects in the 1980’s and was incorporated as OWLA Ltd in 2015.  Now based in mid Suffolk, we undertake projects both locally and in the wider south east.  Our clients are a variety of private individuals, businesses, care and community groups who share the common aim of wanting to successfully realize a building project.  Our motivation is simple; to assist them in doing this the best we can.
Our work encompasses contemporary design and historic buildings and we have won a number of local awards.  We operate as small team and share an approach to each project that is both practical and collaborative in order to arrive at solutions that have both relevance and worth to our clients.  Underpinning this is an acceptance that buildings must offer long-term service and provide best value both economically and environmentally.


OWLA’s portfolio includes projects in the range £50K - £8 million. We have knowledge of the wider legal and contractual responsibilities necessary to ensure the smooth delivery of a project and are familiar with a large number of other building consultants and contractors. We recognize that not all clients and jobs are the same and so we are flexible in the range and scope of services we are able to provide. A partial service will generally include the planning or production phases of a project whilst a full service will incorporate the construction phase as an integrated whole.


As members of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) we subscribe to accepted standards of professionalism. We adopt industry best practice wherever possible and adhere to the RIBA Plan of Work. In addition to core design skills the practice is able to provide 3D visualization, party wall advice, Principal Designer’s duties and a number of other ancillary services. We are also familiar with grant-funded and self-build projects.
