Scott Pohlenz

M. SCOTT POHLENZ, AIA, NCARB
Principal / Owner

Scott has been a licensed architect since 1995. With a background in both commercial and residential projects that stretches from various cities in the US to his ten years in London, Scott displays a distinctive ability to bring people together for a shared vision.

In 2008, Scott founded Pohlenz Cucine Moderne, specializing in kitchen design. In the years following, Scott curated a collection of luxury Italian manufacturers of kitchens, baths, closet systems, interior doors and indoor and outdoor furniture. Ten years later, Scott began to reintroduce architecture as a primary focus of the business and officially rebranded as Pohlenz.

When Scott is not in the studio, he is spending time with his wife Rebecca and four daughters. Along with family time, he treasures the relationships he has built with his friends and clients over his career. He is a KU basketball fanatic. Scott is also on the Board of Trustees for the Tulsa Foundation for Architecture.

Scott holds a Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Kansas, School of Architecture and Design in Lawrence, KS.

Jesse joined Pohlenz in January 2019 with a broad range of experience in projects of varying scopes and sizes.

In addition to overseeing architectural projects from planning through construction, Jesse manages multiple interior residential product designs and installations comprising kitchens, bathrooms and closet systems. He creates effective graphics that are able to communicate complex ideas, from simple diagrams to intricate digital models. 

Family is the most important aspect of Jesse’s life, spending every chance he gets with his wife Bethany and their two girls. He thinks any time is a good time for a cup of coffee and wishes he could dust off his golf clubs more often.
