How We Work: Strategy-based Design
Strategy-based design is an iterative approach that leverages the best of lean methodology, human-centered design, and design thinking. In practice, we begin every creative challenge with a Discover phase, where we identify the problem, prepare and conduct research, and gather inspiration from a wide range of sources. From here, we enter a Define phase, where we tell stories, find patterns and frame early opportunities for design. Once articulated, we brainstorm possibilities and Develop our ideas, conceptually and concretely. Finally, once we are aligned on a way forward, we Deliver by refining our work through to completion.
We discover, develop, and design solutions for the built environment.
Taylor Design’s three practice areas – Architectural Design, Interior Design, and Design Strategy – are united in their use of design as both a point of view, and a shared process.
For over 37 years Taylor Design has engaged in the design of healthcare facilities. We embrace healthcare projects that contribute to the greater good – from modest facility remodels, new construction, and infrastructure improvements, to large-scale hospital replacements and master planning.
