Barbora Vokac Taylor Architect

As a practice, we identify unique conditions in each project to articulate, reveal and amplify their potential in however small a way.

Our work is about telling a story – a subtle poem suggesting and revealing what is most important and delighting those who use and experience the space. Our unique design approach puts people first: we strive to create places that people want to spend their time in.

Through study, observation, rigorous design and partnership with the client, our process works to create projects that are functional, innovative, beautiful and distinct.
