Studio 8 Design was founded in 2005, with a core focus towards bringing creative, responsible design to every project. We believe good design can be achieved, and should be a goal for every project whether large or small, regardless of budget. Rather than specialize in the production of one building type, we look for the unique characteristics of each project, and bring these to the forefront in the development of design ideas. Our firm is a member of the USGBC and strives to implement responsible design strategies in every project. Our project experience is diverse, including commercial, residential, office, multi-family, mixed-use, recreational and urban park commissions.
We pride ourselves on our repeat work with past clients, bringing professionalism and creativity to every project. We consider our clients part of our design team and we value the relationships we build on every project. We also strive to maintain a positive workplace, infusing fun into the creative process. Our people are our strength, and the chemistry we have forged makes every project stronger. We are passionate about our work, our clients, and our co-workers. At the end of the day, it is our passion for architecture that makes the difference.
Studio 8 Design has acted as architect on two home renovation projects or my house here in Nashville, Tennessee. Matt Taylor was the lead architect on both projects.
In both cases, I was very happy with both the technical aspects of the services provided and the responsiveness of Matt and his employees. I have enthusiastically recommended his services to many potential clients and will continue to do so.
I am pleased to write this letter of reference for Matthew Taylor. You may be aware that the City of Franklin recently completed and occupied a new Police Headquarters. Matt Taylor was involved in our process from its conception.
During the several years of planning of our facility, I had many occasions to interact with Matt and his staff. We traveled to other venues to study other buildings, were involved in public meetings during the planning process and spend many hours working together.
I am pleased to say working with Matt and members of his staff was a totally pleasant, uplifting experience. I can speak to his professionalism, his expertise, his straight forward demeanor, and honestly during our process.
I just wanted to send you a note to let you know how pleased we have been with your architectural service. I feel that you have done an excellent job of keeping us informed of every step of the process. We are well pleased with the design of our new office building, and I have been impressed with the way you have been able to incorporate our suggestions into the design. I know that the people at the planning commission have been impressed with your attention to detail.
It has been a real pleasure working with you, and I would not hesitate to recommend your service to any potential clients.
I just wanted to take a brief minute to say how refreshing it has been to work with your organization and how rare it is to see designers that take the time to listen to a client’s desires, program, and then translate that in to solid working documents. I appreciated your group’s relentless passion to meeting committed dates of production. Design professionals that can attain creative designs and do so in a committed time frame are rare. You guys were true team players in integrating contractor & subcontractor value engineering & combining components but yet still achieving the desired results. Some of your staff were young but had a great understanding of the process and the professional confidence to defend and direct the design while keeping the newness of fresh eyes on the design of a corporate environment. The relationship that you had with the codes department also revealed that they have a respect for your group and this relationship, in my opinion, helped expedite the receipt of the building permit.
