About Us

Founded on the simple principle "Build Beautiful Things", Pursley Dixon is an architecture and interior design firm specializing in custom residential work. The studio views both modernism and classicism as part of a broader architectural language, drawing from both when crafting design solutions.

Founded in 2005, the fourteen-person firm works throughout the United States and has received numerous accolades including Veranda/ADAC Architecture firm of the year and Southern Living Home of the Year. Their work is regularly featured in publications including Veranda, Traditional Home, House Beautiful and Milieu. Their first book, Finding Home, will be published by Rizzoli in the Fall of 2021.

How would you describe your style?

"For us, style is a secondary consideration. What is most important is creating spaces that live well through their sense of proportion, attention to detail, and connection with nature. We find that focusing on timeless values instead of chasing the latest trend, yields a more enduring work of architecture."

Please describe a recently completed project or tell us about the bespoke service that you offer

"We recently completed our first project on the west coast of the United States in the coastal town of Manhattan Beach, California. It was exciting to bring a fresh architectural voice to an established context, creating something unique while being mindful to respect the existing community. We were fortunate to work with the Los Angeles based interior designer Joe Lucas and landscape architect Rob Jones to create a holistic living environment imbued with beauty and whimsey."
