About Shannon Taylor Scarlett

Shannon Taylor Scarlett is a registered architect with her own practice in the Boston area, where for over twenty-five years she has worked directly with residential clients to create aesthetically pleasing, flexible, functional spaces.

In the early 80s, she earned her Bachelor of Architecture degree from the University of Oregon, giving purpose and direction to her lifelong love of beautiful places. It also set in motion her exploration of the mutual benefits of combining environmental stewardship with good building design, encouraging community participation and promoting awareness of opportunities and need for sustainability.

As an architectural history buff, Shannon's knowledge of art and architectural history serves as a primary source of inspiration for her work--guiding the architectural experience through material expression, psychological effects of spatial composition and even subtle building symbolism.
