Established in 1975, Winton Scott Architects is a small,  design-oriented architectural practice located in Portland, Maine.  Our work encompasses a diverse array of project types and scales ranging from multi-block urban developments, to historic renovations, commercial and institutional buildings, and multifamily and single family residences.


Our firm has been recognized numerous times for design excellence by the Maine and New England Chapters of the American Institute of Architects, as well as the United States Green Building Council; and our work has been profiled in national trade journals, local publications, and several books focussed on design and architecture.


Winton Scott Architects is comprised of a staff of six, including four senior architects ranging in experience from 15 to 45 years.  The office is organized horizontally with all staff members capable of managing projects from program and design through production of construction documents and construction contract administration. This depth of experience and continuity in staffing have allowed WSA to take on large, complex projects while consistently delivering the highest level of professional services to our clients.  The culture of the office is that of an open, creative collaboration of seasoned architects striving for the highest level of design excellence and client satisfaction.


We believe that architecture should be sustainable,  adaptable,  timeless, and derivative of its context and function.  All buildings, even the most modest in scale and budget, can be at once artful, functional, and inspiring if they are rigorously conceived and executed with craft and precision.  Each of our designs responds to the specific needs of our clients and the individual character of a particular site and its surrounding context.
