Rush Dixon Architects is a solutions-based, contemporary architecture and design firm. For us, a clear understanding of what is being designed, built or re-fashioned is a must, so before we ever put pen to paper we take the necessary time to listen and assess. Results-driven, we design strategically and artfully to create winning solutions that bring value to our clients, whether the goal is a more efficient business, a clearer brand, or a more functional, livable custom residence. We believe that modern design is not found solely in the materials, but rather through the pursuit of better spaces for living and doing business.

As a full-time architectural intern, his skills and approach to architecture are a vital part of the studio with concept designs, Building Information Modeling, computer renderings and Construction Documents.

She previously earned a Bachelor of Art in Architecture from Miami University in 2014 and worked as an exhibit designer in Chicago.

I studied in Florence, Italy for a semester, where I realized every detail has a story to tell."
Every team needs a mascot and ours is awesome. Mr. Buzz, 11, rarely misses a day of work where he can be found in the studio napping, looking for treats and howling at sirens along Coleman Blvd. Having lost his sight recently, he occasionally bumps into things, but remains an inspiring presence in the office.
