Homes for Life



ROGER DEAN has designed a house for the new millennium: artistically beautiful, environmentally kind, but cheap and quick to build. It began as a college project to design a child’s bed and grew into a radically new form of architecture for a world awakening to the damage done by post-war housing and office development.

Roger Dean has designed a sustainable village for life in the 21st century, to be constructed with a new building method and designed to be in harmony with the natural environment. He is currently bringing together a team of top British contractors, engineers, craftsmen and tradesmen to collaborate on the project to enable his vision to be realised in the UK.

He has recently developed his Home for Life concept into a blue print for a complete village with a style and class of its own. An exclusive but affordable new construction method creates the elegant curvilinear interiors, designed to be as practical as they are beautiful on the inside, with an exterior to complement and blend with the natural environment.

The living spaces created by Dean are the result of years of research that has given him a rare insight into how the human psyche relates to interior spaces. The curvilinear shapes don’t just look good, they feel good. The way Dean uses space is not only practical but is also economical, making relatively small rooms feel larger.

The curvilinear nature of Dean’s buildings utilises new and unconventional construction techniques, including the use of sprayed gunnite cement, rarely used for domestic dwellings but ideal for this type of earth sheltered architecture.
