About Scott K.
Scott James became a full-time resident of New Orleans 5 years ago, after living and working in NYC for nearly 30 years as a licensed architect. He was employed with Gensler, SOM and other leading NYC architectural firms, MTV Networks and several luxury retailers including Dior, Zegna and Michael Kors, all of which allowed for international multi-million dollar project experience in the corporate, retail, and residential sectors. Scott also had a private residential practice and acquired hands-on construction experience, designing and renovating private apartments, townhouses and his own Manhattan co-op and upstate New York weekend house. Looking for a change and attracted to the history, music, cuisine and spirit of New Orleans, a decision was made to leave the “Big Apple” and relocate to the “Big Easy,” and within months a Garden District Townhouse was purchased and successfully renovated.
Currently, Scott lives in a historic 1859 Lower Garden District home where he has designed and completed numerous upgrades, including a custom kitchen, bar, master bath and carriage house renovation. Scott’s knowledge of the construction process along with his architectural/interior design expertise will be a tremendous advantage to anyone interested in selling, buying, investing or finding that perfect renovation project!
