Scott Mitchell Studio was founded in 1999, when Scott, at age 28, was commissioned to design his first project—the renovation of a Beverly Hills home. Scott has since developed an extensive architectural, interior, and landscape design portfolio across the US and abroad, including houses and estates, restaurants and retail spaces.
Growing up, Scott’s family relocated every few years, exposing him to different cultures and experiences around the world. He has lived abroad in Japan, Jordan, Australia, and the UK, and throughout the US.
Scott received a Bachelor of Environmental Design from Texas A&M University before moving to New York to work at Stephen Miller Siegel & Associates and then to Bridgehampton to work with Preston T. Phillips, a former protégé of architect Paul Rudolph. Scott completed an internship in Norman Foster’s London office and then moved back to the US to continue his studies at the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc), where he would take on his first project and establish Scott Mitchell Studio.
Under the mentorship of architects Richard Meier and the late Charles Gwathmey, Scott has spent the past 20 years developing his practice and refining his design aesthetic and expertise. Through structure, materiality, and light, he creates thoughtful spaces for living. It is this ability to capture the intangible that inspires Scott’s clients to work with him again and again on multiple projects. Scott sees each project as a true collaboration between the client and his studio. His collaborative process also extends to the team of designers, consultants and contractors with whom he consistently works. Guiding this team, Scott and his team work tirelessly to create beautiful and meaningful spaces—purposeful architecture that is respectful of its programmatic and formal context.
