Carly Barrow


Carly joined the team at Tait Architects at the beginning of 2015 and is currently part of a large project team developing proposals to diversify existing agricultural development to leisure and tourism. Her proactive and efficient approach has enabled the Practice to prioritise its focus, providing proposals for the various phases of the mixed-use scheme – entailing aspects of refurbishment, extension and new build. Carly promotes a friendly and professional relationship with the project team, which drives the project forward in a collaborative manner.

Carly began her architectural career with placements at Stubbs Rich Architects in 2005 and later went on to work for Brown Matthews Architects and Spratley Studios where she qualified as an Architect in 2012. Carly’s experience of both large and small practice brings her a broad knowledge of project sectors and work stages, from interior fit-out to shell and core projects. She is also the practice Quality Manager – developing and implementing Quality Management Systems towards ISO 9001 accreditation and RIBA Chartered Practice status.

Previously Carly worked as Project Architect to deliver several bespoke residential projects through to completion, with a particular passion for the construction phase and the problem solving it can often entail. She also worked as a key member of a team on a number of feasibility studies for Oxford University involving steering group presentations, consultation and report writing.

Carly currently works on a part time basis for Tait Architects, while also developing her own practice.
