Prior to the establishment of Dunn Architects, the principal, Russell Dunn, was employed in the retail design field. Over an eight year period  Russell was involved in the design and documentation of twenty three shopping centre extensions, a large number of shop fitouts and undertook many tenancy coordination roles.

Perhaps the most notable retail experience was Russell’s role as Project Architect on the $100 million extension to the Castle Towers Shopping Centre at Castle Hill, Sydney.
