New name and new website set to launch a new era


Designers by Nature (formerly Dean Picken Designs) launched OUR new name on January 1, 2014.






The new name reflects what inspires us as a design studio.

We are passionate and are driven to achieve high performance buildings encompassing efficiency, functionality, indigenous materials and longevity of build.

Having designed and built many 8 star homes, our understanding that comes from such undertakings allows us to be at the forefront of thermally efficient building design regardless of residential or commercial persuasion.

We look forward to keeping you up to date with the latest innovations that Designers by Nature are applying to our built work as well as those “RADAR” projects currently on the drawing board.

April 2015 should see the unveiling of our new website, full of new projects, loads of images and a BLOG area to keep you informed of what’s happening in the design world.

Cheers from the team @ Designers by Nature
