T-AP launch rebranded practice with two new projects
Edinburgh based Taylor Architecture Practice (T-AP), formerly known as A Priori Design and Architecture, have marked their re-launch as a design-led practice with the unveiling of two new projects; a residential conversion at Pentland Avenue in the capital and conversion of a former corn mill in Lancashire to serve as headquarters office space.

Pentland Avenue is a £1.4m five bedroom contemporary home set into the hillside overlooking the Water of Leith. Designed to mitigate visual impact on neighbouring properties the house incorporates a series of cut-backs, terraces and rooflights.

Explaining the rebrand to Urban Realm T-AP’s Neil Taylor, son of practice founder David Taylor, said: “When I joined from Wilkinson Eyre Architects three years ago we decided that we’d set up a new company that was focussed on architectural services and we called it APD Architecture.

“That name never stuck very well as far as I was concerned, it was just a bit clumsy and people consistently get it wrong. They get the D and the P the wrong way round.”

Amongst T-AP’s current projects are a new entrance building for castle MacLellan Foods, Kirkcudbright, and an aerial assault course above the existing atrium and roof of The Centre, Livingston. Both are due for completion in mid-October.
