Dixon Jones News

28 Sep 2020

The practice of Dixon Jones closed at the end of September 2020. Founders Jeremy Dixon and Edward Jones said the firm had been hard-hit by Covid-19’s negative effect. The pair are both in their eighties, so retirement feels appropriate, but sad that such a respected practice could not hand over the baton to a younger leadership team.

This British architecture practice was established in 1989. The design firm is best known for projects for major British institutions such as the Royal Opera House, the National Gallery, the National Portrait Gallery and work at Oxford and Cambridge Universities.

RIBA Awards 2012 Winner
Dixon Jones won the design competition to integrate vehicle and foot traffic and provide an attractive pedestrian environment without unduly compromising the road’s role as a key transport link. Their proposal employed a grand diagonal pattern in the paving which acknowledges the scale and grandeur of the street.

As a result of long consultation with disability groups, colour, texture and scale are utilised to inform users of the extent and margins of the four metre wide ‘safe areas’ with continuous strips of ‘corduroy’ paving and drainage grilles contrasting with the background grey and diagonal pink granite setts. Street clutter has been reduced to a minimum.
