Hi, I’m Dean Brunton,
I’m a firm believer that there are no problems, only solutions when it comes to home improvement. Whether it’s a dysfunctional floor plan, a question of aesthetics or a simple space issue, I like the challenge of taking a home and making it better. I’ve overseen many of the large home extension projects I’ve designed since I started as a junior draftsman with Dale’s in 1994, and my wife and I have built three times in the past 15 years, so you could say I’m pretty adept at marrying good design with the practicalities of construction and renovation. I think it’s also important to remember that architectural styles come and go, and each time they evolve into something new. As a designer you have to adapt to current trends while having a good understanding of the past. With 20 years design experience under my belt, I still get excited when a house throws up a challenge – it could be from the past, the present or the future – and it’s my job to find the solution.
