(b. 1865, Ramsgate, d. 1945, Brighton)


English architect and interior designer. Through his long career, he designed in a variety of styles, including a style derived from the Tudor, an Arts and Crafts style reminiscent of Voysey.

He studied architecture briefly in Bath, but his architectural development was especially marked by the 12 years he spent in Douglas, Isle of Man. He set up his business on the island in 1893. He received commissions from England, Poland, Russia, Germany, and Switzerland.

In 1898, he was asked to join the colony of artists in Darmstadt, where he and Charles Robert Ashbee designed several interiors for the New Palace. In 1901, he won first prize in a German crafts competition and returned to England that same year.

He was not as popular and well known in his native England as he was in the rest of Europe, especially in Germany, where through him English Art Nouveau was introduced to a wider audience.

Baille Scott was known for the work he put into both the exterior and the interior decoration of his buildings. He produced nearly 300 buildings throughout his career.
