Chapman Taylor Open Project Ltd
Chapman Taylor is an international practice of architects, masterplanners and interior designers operating from 16 regional offices and with experience of working in over 80 countries around the world. The practice was established in the UK in 1959 and developed an early reputation as the designers of many prestigious office and residential developments in Central London, as well as working on the masterplanning of some of the major London estates. During the 1970s and 1980s the practice was at the forefront of the dramatic expansion of the retail sector in the UK and designed the majority of the many successful shopping centres built at that time. In the early 1990s Chapman Taylor commenced its growth internationally, designing many projects outside the UK and opening its first offices on mainland Europe. The first decade of the 21st century saw the consolidation and expansion of the practice to encompass projects and offices in three continents.
