Scott Ballard is a talented, kind, creative individual. From what I can detect he designs with utilizing the best site lines in mind, lots of light and takes into account the lifestyle of a family. One day I want him to build me a treehouse in the sky and I trust him to completely do his thing!
Best Architect - 2007
Scott Ballard has worked on design projects as far away as Kuala Lumpur, but some of his coolest work is right here in Houston, where the architect lives inside the Loop in one of his own hip designs. Sleek and oh-so-modern, the homes he creates are fine enough to impress the most discriminating tastes and funky enough to amuse and bemuse anyone who loves interesting houses. His kitchens are user-friendly, with lots of nooks and crannies for kids and busy families to store stuff, but they feel spacious and airy at the same time. And his great rooms soar with high ceilings and loads of lofty, lovely light. Occasionally, he'll put a secret lookout right on top of your roof, where you can climb with the closest members of your entourage to sip wine while you gaze at the gleaming skyline.
Scott is a fine architect and a true pleasure to work with. He designd three homes for me, all of which have unmatched quality and design without breaking the bank.
Scott designed a house that we built almost 13 years ago - and we still think it's the best house we've ever been in...and out of.
I am proud to have him as a client. I have been shooting his homes for 7 years. See some of his designs at www.mikeortega.com
