Sheldon Colen

The Boss- leader of the architectural and design team at SCA Design, Architectural Firm

Sheldon Colen knew he was destined to a career in architecture when at 15 years old he was commissioned to design and oversee the construction of a home.  After winning numerous state architecture contests throughout high school, he continued his studies and received a certificate in Architecture & Design (1986).  He was also one of the first to master and embrace Computer Aided Design (CAD) in which he was certified (1986).  His original rendering of a design studio, “Bullpen,” won the CADDIES contest in the Still Image Category (1993).

Starting practice in 1986, he has had a long and fulfilling career in planning, architecture and residential design.   He has successfully combined his experiences in all aspects of these disciplines to assist his clients in bringing to life innovative, functional projects with a watchful eye on budgets to achieve their goals.

Working for Tate & Snyder Architects of Las Vegas (1986 – 1993), Colen established and managed the CAD Department and was quickly promoted to Project Job Capitan.  He went on to work for Richard Youngblood Architects (1993-1994) where he discovered his true passion in residential design before he opened his own firm. SCA Design in Las Vegas, Nevada (1995 – present).

Today, Sheldon leads his team at SCA Design, his own architectural and design firm of ten, specializing in commercial, hospitality, retail, entertainment and casino as well as residential design and interiors. When he’s not running the office, he’s running Disney marathons, “where every mile is magic!” As a Disney fanatic, Sheldon leads his team with the belief as, Walt Disney would say, “It’s kind of fun to do THE IMPOSSIBLE”.
