There are few architects with the flair or pizzazz of Scott Weston, in particular his use of colour, which has signatured his work with several ‘Best use of Colour’ awards under his belt. These include the Medusa boutique hotel, which Conde Nast Traveller magazine voted as one of the ‘21 coolest hotels in the world’. Awarded the University Medal and a suite of scholarships, Weston has an innate skill that has expanded with travel and a passion for odd and interesting elements.
“Scott’s ability to borrow from the past and reinvent to a modern context is his forte, so is a theatrical flair for rich and dramatic architectural concepts based on a rigorous set of design rules. This is clearly demonstrated in the alterations and addition to ‘Hobart’, a grand Victorian terrace in Pitt Street, Redfern,” his website states.
“I’m about to build my new home in Paddington and these are on my Object List,” says Weston.
