How We Work...

Founded in 1988 by Tyler Scott, we plan, design and manage building projects for an impressive range of commercial clients, with a focus on healthcare, housing, and education.

The process begins with a question: What do you want from your space? From here, ideas are generated. No idea is too big, small or sacred. Creating the right space requires meticulous planning, imaginative thinking, open communication and relentless management. We do not integrate any one particular style into our work, but strive to carefully incorporate the demands of function, budget, sustainability, and context to create buildings and spaces of enduring value for our clients.

We believe an engaged, collaborative design process involving the client and the design team will bring out the most innovative and successful design solutions for any project. Our work culminates in spaces that elegantly represent a point-of-view, meet or surpass technical requisites, and provide something that everyone involved is proud to enjoy.

The Team:

Tyler Scott, AIA

Architect + Founder

Tyler is a prolific generator of ideas. “Ideas aren’t sacred,” he muses. Ideas are a means to an end for Tyler, and fuel his unbiased and uncompromising pursuit for the ideal architectural solution.

In addition, Tyler manages the healthcare portion of the firm’s work.

John Alden, AIA

Architect + Partner

“What if?” This is possibly John Alden’s favorite question. He asks it of clients, architects, builders, and himself. John looks at every angle, explores every avenue, and pursues every idea before landing on the best solution for the project. With a Bachelor of Arts in Classical Civilizations and Political Science from University of Vermont and a Master of Architecture from State University of New York at Buffalo, John is a Registered Architect in the States of VT, NY, NH, and MA, and he is primarily responsible for facility evaluations, project development and team management.

Joel Page, AIA

Architect + Partner

Practical and technically proficient with a balanced and steady manner — Joel approaches projects from a holistic perspective focusing on the client’s needs while keeping an eye on the future impact of the design. “How we live today impacts our planet’s future – design is no different.” Good design should be sustainable, energy efficient and universal. With a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from Bates College and an Associate of Applied Science from Vermont Technical College, Joel is a Registered Architect in Vermont. His primary responsibilities include design and project management.

Kevin Trout, AIA
