Richard (Ric) Stott obtained a Bachelor of Science in Sociology, from Dowling College in 1973. After graduation, he moved to California where he found his way into the building trades. With a construction background as a carpenter and contractor, he attended architecture school. After receiving a Master of Architecture Degree, with Honors, from California Polytechnic State University in 1983, he moved back to the East Coast where he established his own firm in 1988. In 1996 Mr. Stott consolidated efforts and joined forces with Henry M. Flynn Architect in Southampton. Together they completed commercial, institutional and residential projects in New York and Maine. Their award-winning, innovative, and original designs include custom-made furniture, built-ins, and architectural features. Stott Architecture, P.C. was established in 2013 after Flynn’s retirement. The firm integrates a variety of efficient and environmentally responsible technologies including Solar Air/Water Heating, Photovoltaic Energy, Geothermal Heating and Cooling, Passive Solar Design. Mr. Stott’s area of interest and expertise is “sustainable” architecture. As a LEED AP, he has recently completed the first LEED Platinum, Carbon Neutral home in Suffolk County.
