There was never any doubt about Dean's destiny, as a child he loved playing with Lego and his favourite past time was building cubby houses.

Dean founded Design & Beyond in 1998 out of a desire for architectural versatility, this has enabled the successful delivery of a broad range of residential, retail and commercial projects both in Australia and overseas.

Principles of Ecologically Sustainable Design (ESD): low energy use, water conservation and sustainable material selection are encouraged into each project. 

The practice has quickly established a reputation for innovative high quality buildable solutions delivered on time and within budget.
