Chris graduated from Sheffield University School of Architecture. He joined Dixon Jones in 1996 and was made an Associate Director in 2018. He also has experience working in private practice in Kent and London, on arts and education projects.

Chris is an experienced project architect with a particular interest in utilising 3D computer and physical modelling techniques to explore design solutions. He has worked on many successful competition schemes and design submissions while at Dixon Jones, and his particular skills have also contributed to many of the practice’s built projects. Chris has built up a wide variety of experience across all sectors, through a variety of design and construction phases. He combines strong conceptual and design ability with practical experience of delivery on both refurbishment and new-build projects.

Chris is currently project architect on a large master planning project in Edinburgh, and on several projects in early design stages.

Chris has taken a key role on many Dixon Jones projects including the Said Business School, Kings Place, Royal Opera House, National Portrait Gallery and National Gallery, where he was involved from inception to completion. On Quadrant 3 Chris’s work included development and construction of the facades and public spaces. He also oversaw the technical design and implementation of the Westgate retail project in Oxford.

Chris worked closely with Jeremy Dixon on the Tatlin Tower installation at the Royal Academy and latterly at the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts and was responsible for the complex geometrical setting out and technical implementation of this fascinating and challenging reconstruction.
