Welcome to OWL Architects

Architects Designers and Project Managers

About Us



OWL Architects is an RIBA Chartered Practice offering architectural, design and project management services. OWLA grew out of the prominent social housing practice of Tayler and Green and has been trading in its current form for over 30 years. From offices in Suffolk we undertake projects across East Anglia and the south east, assisting individuals and a variety of business and community clients to successfully realize building projects both large and small. We have experience in the alteration of existing and historic buildings and are also familiar with grant-funded and self-build projects.


Our approach to architecture is both practical; drawing on our knowledge of building design, planning law and construction, and collaborative; listening to and understanding the particular requirements and constraints of each project to arrive at solutions that have both relevance and value. Our service is friendly and responsive and we invite clients to share our enthusiasm for the creative process. Underpinning this is an acceptance that buildings must offer long-term service and provide best value both economically and environmentally.


OWL Architects provide expertise in all aspects of building design and procurement and have a proven track record in the delivery of projects in the range £50K - £6 million.


We support AutoCAD drawing software, subscribe to the National Building Specification and have experience of a wide range of procurement options. In addition to core design skills the practice is also able to provide 3D visualization, party wall advice, Principal Designer’s duties and a number of other ancillary services.


OWLA employs qualified staff and has knowledge of the wider legal and contractual responsibilities necessary to the smooth delivery of a project. We are familiar with a large number of building consultants, contractors and development agencies and so are well placed to provide professional support throughout the construction process. We recognise that not all jobs are the same and so are flexible in the range and scope of services we are able to provide; our primary aim is to help you achieve something of quality.
