Jeff Scott - Director of Architecture

Jeff Scott, a Naples architect for over 27 years, has completed several design projects locally which include The Ritz Carlton Hotel, Collier County Government Complex, Publix Supermarkets, Marshall’s and Office Depot. The Oasis Condominium, located on Singer Island in Palm Beach County, is a remarkable example of his work. The project is a 22-story twin tower beachfront building consisting of 38 units. "What makes this design unique," states Jeff Scott, "is the concept of one unit per floor, providing a 360 degree view of the coastline." He adds, "This project utilized wind tunnel testing to incorporate the latest hurricane force wind loads in the structural design." Although surrounding buildings were severely damaged in September 2004 by both Hurricanes Francis and Jeanne, the Oasis Condominium, two weeks prior to completion, remained unaffected.

Jeff, a LEED and NCARD certified architect, is originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He graduated from the School of Architecture at Kent State University in Ohio. Relocating to the Naples area in 1989, he began working on commercial, educational, residential and religious projects for a local architect.

Spending time in Europe he studied classic architecture and has an appreciation for proportion and design. He graduated from the School of Architecture at Kent State University in Ohio. His first architectural registration was in Ohio, and while working for Revco Drug stores he obtained registrations from New York to Florida as he designed projects located in the eastern half of the United States. Relocating to Naples area in 1989, he began designing commercial, educational, residential and religious projects for a local architect. After Hurricane Katrina Jeff designed new housing in Biloxi, Mississippi to rebuild the area after the devastation from the storm.
