Keith joined the practice in 2000 for a summer work placement during his professional studies. Since graduating the Leicester School of Architecture, Keith has risen through the ranks to management level and took ownership of Guy Taylor Associates in 2014. Under his stewardship the practice has now grown to four offices in the UK covering a diverse range of disciplines and is recognised as one of the key consultancies for Heritage and Cultural projects.
Early works include the conversion of a Grade II* Listed French Gothic Hall to become one of the countries most highly awarded Day Spa destinations. He also designed and delivered projects including hotels, large scale office developments, data-centres, residential, and heritage projects, but now enjoys spending much of his time assisting the lead designers in delivering high-end Luxury Houses and the more sensitive works of the practice. The project Keith is most proud of was the development of Eco-Apartments for a local charity which has completely changed the lives of a number of retired residents.
Keith not only leads the practice, but is a highly skilled designer in contemporary works and in heritage interpretation for which he has won numerous awards. He also undertakes planning negotiation work and develops strategic analysis and masterplanning for land and property at all scales.
In his personal life, Keith has a young family and is actively involved in Childrens Charities including the Inspire and Achieve Foundation, and has recently set up a heritage trust which aims to restore listed buildings along the waterways of Britain.
