D. Stanley Dixon Architect

A Private Residence, Atlanta, Georgia

Since Tennessee native Stan Dixon founded his Atlanta firm four years ago, the understated elegance of his residential designs has garnered awards and captivated high-profile clients—from Braves pitcher Derek Lowe to best-selling author Kathryn Stockett. A recent restoration of an eighteenth-century revival estate in Atlanta is typical of what Dixon calls his “less is more” approach to traditional architecture. Rather than pile on the pilasters, he focused instead on adding such period details as a slate roof, a hemlock-paneled study, and an octagonal porch inspired by Virginia’s Gunston Hall. While his firm is busy working on major commissions from Nashville to Jupiter Island, Dixon welcomes any client—no matter how small the project or modest the budget—who appreciates the authenticity and craftsmanship of his approach.
