Name: Tania Taylor
Title: Associate Principal, Co-Lead Architecture, WillowDigital™ Architecture
Joined Willow: October 2018
Location: Sydney
Fun Facts:

  1. I commenced my direction in life as a musician (violin, piano, bongos) before pursuing design as a career.
  2. I am the fifth generation of tertiary educated women in my family.

What led you to Willow?

A redefinition of what design means to me has been one of the paramount reasons I have been drawn to becoming part of the Willow family. Having spent over 30 amazing years working with large creative and incredible architectural firms including Cox Architecture, and also significant corporate businesses such as Westfield/Scentre Group and AMP (working on both local and international projects of major and small scale) my thoughts have crystallised around the breadth of what defines design in reality.

Not until an environment is fully realised does the creative design process cease to influence an outcome. Within Willow, fostering the importance of how a space, building or opportunity is detailed, documented, engineered in 3D and ready for virtual inheritance through interactive technology is a highly inspiring proposition. Simply put, I am humbled working alongside visionaries.

The other reason I was drawn to Willow is the calibre and nature of the people I work with. The culture of delivering complex projects with a high measure of not only skill and knowledge, but trust and care makes each day a positive and inclusive experience.

What are your skills/expertise?

I studied a design degree in Human Environments which covered interior design, interior architecture, furniture and lighting design. Importantly in my early career I was given high levels of responsibilities, gaining a grounding not only in design but also building contract administration, construction site experience, client/ stakeholder exposure and complex problem solving.

During my 19 years with Cox Architecture, I led the interior design team on numerous national and international projects, ranging from convention exhibition centres (Kuala Lumpur Convention + Exhibition Centre), commercial, high density residential, sporting stadia (Losail Stadium Doha, Qatar), casinos and research (The University of Wollongong Sustainable Buildings Research Centre) and also the ESD teams locally and nationally. I was also instrumental in supporting the business in gaining ISO 14001 accreditation, with the vision to help establish sustainable thinking through behavioural change, targeting a culture of front-of-mind and natural thinking.

More recently, my rich experiences working in more corporate realms have allowed me to develop skills in areas of people planning, leadership and understanding the meaning of effective cultural evolution and contribution – the how of what we do being of significant importance.

What projects are you working on?

I commenced working at Willow by joining the exceptional team on the Sovereign Resort Expansion – The Star Sydney project which is currently under construction. In parallel I am supporting the business in the role of Co-Lead of Architecture, jointly leading the WillowDigitalTM Architecture team in delivering complex building projects, as well as supporting in the related areas of business integration, marketing, quality assurance, business development, risk management, project resourcing and the architectural team’s professional development.

What do you see as the biggest opportunities in our industry?

Reinvention and densification are two things I personally believe will shape our collective futures. Firstly, sustainable behaviour at a macro scale, with the ability to create denser/ smarter/ more efficient infrastructure opportunities within our current city footprint is paramount. Secondly, our ability to reinvent existing opportunities – such as building / site reuse and adaptation to suit future needs such as the great historic building reinvigoration projects Willow is part of here in Sydney.
