About Us

The Practice


MRT Architects is a design-led chartered architectural practice based in Stratford-Upon-Avon and the Cotswolds with over 45 years experience and an established reputation for creating high-quality, imaginative, and well-considered designs coupled with a commercial awareness.

Founded in 1975 the architectural practice of Rathbone Taylor amalgamated with Marson Architects to form Marson Rathbone Taylor LLP Architects to bring together the resources and expertise of the two practices.

MRT Architects undertakes work across a broad spectrum of building types; from large and small residential projects to civic, leisure, commercial, and educational schemes. As such the clients we work for range from large developers, private individuals, and a number of public and private bodies.

We pride ourselves on being an approachable and friendly practice and our projects are always a tailor-made response to our client’s specific needs and the unique characteristics of a site. The practice is adept at delivering both traditional and contemporary high quality designs and, using our extensive local knowledge, we have been able to secure planning consents for a number of sensitive sites.
