Dean Works Architecture PLLC is a Brooklyn-based architecture and design practice established by Brandon Dean in 2018. Our work has been featured in a variety of publications including Brownstoner, Dwell, and Dezeen. 


We are believers that the very best projects are a balance of functionality and beauty. We believe the path towards creating a great project is by listening closely and thinking creatively. Our aim is to reduce spaces to their fundamentals, emphasizing and exploring the relationship between old and new, heaviness and lightness. 

The building sector remains one of the single greatest contributors to greenhouse gases. We believe that elegant design, research, and study can lead to buildings that last longer and consume less resources.  There are simple ways to site and orient homes and buildings, specific to every type of climate and location, that when designed properly, can reduce energy consumption while enhancing and delighting the people inside.
