Jim Taylor first joined Peter Pennoyer Architects in 1999 and was made a partner in 2014. He has been responsible for commissions across the country representing diverse architectural traditions and styles and has excelled at navigating unique and challenging building situations. His current projects include a Shingle style estate on Long Island and a stucco and stone house in Ohio that fuses the American Arts & Crafts tradition with Czech Cubism.
Jim guides the firm’s exploration into new technology and directs its practice of producing projects using the most cutting edge methods and computer design tools available. His knowledge and commitment to incorporating 3D technology in projects has enabled the firm to help clients and builders visualize a house or a room at an almost unlimited level of detail. Jim also designed and oversaw the production of the firm’s first line of custom hardware, which was created in collaboration with Lowe Hardware in Maine.
Jim has presented lectures at the University of Notre Dame School of Architecture, the University of Arkansas Fay Jones School of Architecture, and The University of Colorado, Denver on the firm’s implementation of 3D technology and printing to salvage forgotten architectural details for new production in contemporary projects.
Jim received his Master of Architecture from the University of Edinburgh. He is a registered architect in the State of New York and a member of the American Institute of Architects.
