A crash in US housing prices, coupled with parity between the US and Australian dollars, prompted Dixon Advisory to establish an investment opportunity in one of the most dynamic and fast-paced property markets in the world: New York City. This investment required firm controls over the cost and quality of its project renovations, sparking the genesis of Dixon Projects – a client-focused team of highly skilled interior designers, architects and projects managers responsible for delivering projects across an array of residential, multi-unit and commercial properties, as well as the retail and hospitality sectors.
Dixon Projects’ collaborative, in-house approach has since resulted in the delivery of more than 800 projects for our New York City clients. Building on this success, the team recognised a similar niche in the Australian design services industry, where a rigorous process and discerning eye for detail would enable clients to live their best lives. Since entering the Australian market, Dixon Projects has established an impressive portfolio of residential and commercial projects across Sydney, Melbourne, the Northern Beaches, Lower North Shore and rural Victoria.
Dixon Projects invites you to leverage the vision and experience of dedicated industry professionals responsible for delivering an impressive body of quality work across Australia and New York City.
