Dates of existence
Of Scottish descent, Baillie Scott was born in 23 October 1865 in Kent. He was a prominent architect in the arts and crafts movement and an influential contemporary of Charles Rennie Mackintosh. After his marriage to Florence Kate Nash, 1862–1939, Baillie Scott lived and worked predominently on the Isle of Man. In January 1895 Scott published an article entitled 'An ideal suburban house', the first of many, in 'The Studio'. Widely read in Europe and America, 'The Studio' was the leading progressive art magazine of the day. In the decade which followed Scott designed (and in most cases built) about a dozen houses and interiors in Europe and the United States, of which Landhaus Waldbühl at Uzwil in Switzerland (1907–11) was probably the most elaborate. Probably no British architect working in the domestic field was better known in Europe before the First World War than Scott. His book 'Houses and Gardens', which details his ideas on house design was published in 1906. He died 10 February 1945 in Brighton.
