BELIEFS

TRULY MEANINGFUL ARCHITECTURE CONNECTS THROUGH EXPERIENCE. IT’S A REFLECTION OF THE BUILDING’S INHABITANTS AND CELEBRATES THE GENTLE APPLICATION OF EVERY DETAIL. ALL ELEMENTS HAVE A RELATIONSHIP TO ONE ANOTHER; BE IT SPACE, LIGHT, MATERIALS, VIEWS, TEXTURES, OR SOUND. WE BELIEVE EVERY DECISION – FROM THE PLACEMENT OF A BUILDING ON THE LAND TO THE SELECTION OF A DRAWER-PULL – LENDS CREDENCE TO A SENSE OF PLACE AND FAMILIARITY. THOSE NUANCES ARE THE ROOT OF AN ARCHITECTURE THAT CONNECTS, RESONATES, AND REFLECTS WHAT’S MOST IMPORTANT IN CLIENTS’ LIVES.

BIO

GROWING UP IN ALABAMA, CORBETT SPENT MANY WEEKENDS IN A SMALL TOWN WITH MOST OF ITS BUILDING FROM THE EARLY 1800’S STILL INTACT AND IN USE.  RUNNING, BIKING, AND CLIMBING IN A PLACE RIPE WITH ARCHITECTURAL HISTORY HAD ITS IMPACT. IT SPARKED HIS INTEREST IN HOW BUILDINGS ARE INFORMED BY ITS INHABITANTS, PURPOSE, & CLIMATE.  THESE LESSONS WERE GIVEN FORMAL REINFORCEMENT AT TULANE UNIVERSITY, WHERE HE EARNED HIS MASTERS DEGREE IN ARCHITECTURE.  AFTER GRADUATING IN 2002, CORBETT HAD THE PRIVILEGE OF WORKING WITH SOME OF THE MOST TALENTED ARCHITECTS AND DESIGNERS IN THE SOUTH.

BUILDING ON THESE EXPERIENCES, HE STARTED CORBETT SCOTT, ARCHITECT IN 2014.  FROM HIS OFFICE ON MAGAZINE STREET IN THE GARDEN DISTRICT, HE APPLIES HIS LIFE-LONG LOVE OF CONNECTING PEOPLE TO THEIR BUILDINGS.  PLAYING WITH THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN MATERIALS, LIGHT, AND SPACES-HE DESIGNS PROJECTS RANGING FROM SINGLE-FAMILY HOUSES TO RESTAURANTS.  EACH PROJECT STRIVES TO REFLECT WHAT IS MOST IMPORTANT IN HIS CLIENTS’ LIVES AND TO MAKE BUILDING THAT NOT ONLY LOOK GOOD, ARE EASILY LIVED IN.
