Jeremy Dixon and Edward Jones started Dixon Jones in the 1980s. The practice is part of a variety of works, from private housing to complex mixed use developments and masterplans. As a result of their collective experience in many different project scales, typologies, methods of procurement and clients, each commissioned project is approached as a response to the requirements of the clients and the surrounding context. The team is particularly captivated with the civic benefaction that buildings contribute to the city, the possibility to merge external and internal spaces and designate new routes. Dixon Jones is more commonly known for their works on the National Portrait Gallery, Somerset House, the Royal Opera House, the National Gallery and the modification of Exhibition Road in London. Edward Jones also developed the Studio House in Chelsea London and collaborated in 2003 with his wife, Margot Jones, to design Villa Jones in France.
