Taylor Plosser Davis – Owner / Architect
Growing up as the daughter of an architect, Taylor spent many weekends walking her father’s construction sites. Now, as a mother of three, she brings her own kids to her job sites, where they meet the contractors, watch as kitchens are installed, and learn how walls are framed.
After graduating from Princeton and receiving her Masters in Architecture from the University of Virginia, Taylor worked at Beyer Blinder Belle in New York, where she collaborated on projects ranging from multi-family housing to boutique retail and urban design. Her work there and here in Birmingham as a residential architect in private practice has focused on the idea that buildings are more than their structures and finishes. Buildings can tell our stories, as they reflect how we live and what we love.
Since starting her own Birmingham architecture practice nine years ago, Taylor’s work has centered on families. As a mother, she is keenly familiar with how space needs change as families change, and her approach as an architect is driven by a sincere delight in helping families invest in new spaces that tell their unique story. As a student of architectural history, Taylor has an appreciation and understanding of all sorts of design vocabularies, and her designs are not constrained to a particular style or trend. Rather, her design process relies on intimate collaborations with her clients. Through those relationships, she seeks to create simple and elegant design solutions which are well-crafted and attentive to details that enhance both function and delight.
Taylor sits on the Board of Directors for the McWane Science Center in Birmingham, and is a volunteer with the Linly Heflin Unit and Saint Luke’s Episcopal Church. In her spare time, she enjoys reading science fiction novels and baking extravagant cakes.
