About The Authors

As in any relationship, communication is the cornerstone. With nearly 25 years of joint endeavors, and 30 years of marriage, William and Phyllis Taylor personify two minds with one goal: to create a perfect reflection of their clients’ spatial portrait with the choicest of design elements and meticulous architectural amenities.

After apprenticing separately with several of Florida’s leading architectural firms and completing a wide range of project types including airport concourses, colleges, office buildings, resorts, libraries, as well as custom homes, the Taylors decided to meld their considerable experience and talent into a new firm of their own and, in 1983, established the Taylor & Taylor Partnership.

The Taylors were educated and trained in the Bauhausian tradition as form- follows-function modernists. Subsequent to their graduation, they worked separately for firms renowned for their modernist creations. Having travelled widely in the U.S, Europe, South & Central America and the Caribbean they never forgot their love of indigenous and traditional architectural styles. They consider themselves fortunate in their own practice to be called upon to create projects in a multiple of styles. As Mr. Taylor often says “We love all styles, as long as they are done well.”

The Miami Beach-based architecture and interior design firm presents luxurious private residences from Orlando to Key West, reinterpreting Florida styles from Mediterranean to Art Deco.
