Scott is a fully qualified practicing RIBA Chartered Architect working in the UK. He has held senior leading roles and gained extensive experience in the delivery of a broad range of significant and award-winning residential and mixed-used schemes in London, across the South & South East of England and Scotland.

His practical and strategic participation within leading architectural firms for over thirty years has led to close involvement with many prominent Clients and stakeholders including Local Authorities, Housing Associations, property developers and contractors, community led groups, governmental and regulatory organisations and multi-disciplinary teams of expert advisors & consultants. This has helped contribute towards an in-depth knowledge and understanding of all aspects of building design & technology, project management and construction and allowed Scott to become adept in making a positive and valued contribution towards the provision of sustainable, accessible and inclusive environments.

Scott brings a positive, professional and collaborative approach to his work, attributes which are balanced with an empathy and responsiveness which prove invaluable towards providing resolute input, guidance and support to Clients towards achieving successful outcomes on projects.


Scott has experience in all stages of projects from inception to completion. In practice he has been involved primarily on mixed-use residential led developments ranging from small scale domestic to complex large scale regeneration schemes which collectively have provided around 3,000 new homes ranging from affordable for rent and shared ownership to high value private housing. Many of these projects have included both publicly accessible and private facilities such as community centres, retail and commercial spaces, medical and health care amenities, pharmacies, gymnasiums, cafes and childcare nurseries and involved the renovation and conversion of heritage buildings.

Projects of note include a complex, multi-faceted third age residential development on a former psychiatric hospital site that sat within a North London conservation area. The scheme included thoughtfully designed new build townhouses and apartments and the conversion and restoration of existing listed buildings. A portion of the scheme was to be occupied by a co-housing community who required shared spaces and amenities to promote and support their desired independence. It also included affordable and private housing with enhanced accessibility standards that were designated by the charitable housing association Client providing housing specifically for the elderly and those with reduced mobility. Amongst the many accolades the completed development received were a Commendation from the Civic Trust Awards Commendation.
