Our Story

Taylor Architecture & Design was established in 2001 and is located in downtown North Plainfield, New Jersey. Our primary focus is the design of mixed use residential buildings. Brian Taylor, Founder and President, has a strong background in the world of real estate development. He adds value to the firm's architectural services by leveraging his experience gained while leading the design team at a large private developer.

His insight and sensitivity to the needs of real estate developers sets him apart from the competition. Every member of the firm shares this culture which makes Taylor Architecture & Design a powerful asset in any real estate venture.





Brian Taylor is the Founder and President of Taylor Architecture & Design. He is in the unique position to serve the firm’s mixed use residential developer clients, identify their issues and solve their problems. To do this he draws on both his formal education and experience working for a developer, dealing first hand with the risks that developers face in their real estate businesses.

Brian understands what keeps his developer clients up at night: poorly performing buildings that affect bottom line cash flow, overruns on project schedule and budget, as well as the economic cycle and how it may affect the timing of current projects.

The list goes on and Brian Taylor not only understands these risks but has specifically developed his practice to navigate and mitigate these issues before they become problems.
