Scott Merrill

Architect’s Biography

Scott Merrill opened his practice in Vero Beach, Florida in 1990 to work on the new Duany Plater-Zyberk master plan for the project of Windsor. Since then he has taken on two partners: George Pastor in 1997 and David Colgan in 1999. Pastor and Merrill operate out of the office in Vero Beach, while Colgan operates the satellite office in Atlanta, Georgia.

The firm works on projects of all scales and types in a variety of locations. Their portfolio includes churches, town halls, mixed-use buildings, row houses, apartments, university buildings, public gardens, club master plans, and many private residences in urban sites and historic districts throughout the eastern United States. The firm has done projects around the world: in New Zealand; St. Petersburg, Russia; Abu Dhabi, UAE; London, England; Edinburgh, Scotland; Saudi Arabia and throughout the Caribbean.

Scott Merrill received a national AIA (American Institute of Architects) award for his first Seaside project in 1990, and the firm has received a total of three national AIA awards, including one in urban design for their first group of buildings and gardens. The firm has also been recognized for its designs fourteen times by the Florida AIA. The recognition has been for a wide variety of building types.

Merrill has lectured throughout the country on the firm’s design work, which has been widely published in the United States and Europe. The firm received the Arthur Ross Award from the Institute for Classical Architecture in New York, in recognition of a body of work that has contributed to traditional American design.
