Ten to One is a published and award-winning Brooklyn based design studio that in 6 years has worked on 90 projects including 46 built, 6 currently in construction, 11 in progress, and 22 designs completed. We work across a wide array of project types, scales and budgets, ranging from urban design to schools to mixed-use developments to homes to apartments to follies to furniture, from private residential to urban revitalization projects. Each project informs the next.
Our projects have won multiple 2018 A|N Best of Design Awards and a 2018 Architizer A+ Finalist Award. Ten to One contributed to the 2014 Venice Architecture Biennale as one of the multi-national team of outposts for the OfficeUS U.S. Our work has been featured in publications such as Dwell “We Love New York: Inside the City’s Smartest Homes,” Architect’s Newspaper “Best of Design,” Archinect’s Studio Snapshot, New York Cottage and Garden Apartment Issue, 150 Best New Apartment Ideas by Harper Collins and Teacher | Librarian Journal for School Library Professionals.
Ten to One refers to long odds. We seek to create magical spatial narratives which enrich the everyday lives of our clients. Our design process seeks opportunities along spectrums between practicality and folly, material agglomeration and differentiation, analog and digital, private and public, urbane and wild.
Our work is a collaborative venture with our clients, performed in collaboration with numerous other designers and fabricators. We have a partner firm, Jones Cole Collaborative (JCCo), which we integrate with as needed, particularly on larger projects.
We customize our services for each project, ranging from design consultation to full design services, proforma and zoning analysis to budget estimating, strategic planning to capital campaigning, construction management to design/build.
Ten to One advocates for equity and sustainability in our projects as well as our practice. Ten to One invests a minimum of 10% of our resources to equitable civic engagement, sustainability and pro bono projects. We are B Corp Certified. Most of our employees are minority, women or LGBTQ.
Ten to One works in partnership with Jones Cole Collaborative (JCCo) led by partners Garrick Jones and Jeffrey Cole, R.A., with 50 years combined experience delivering 1,000,000 square feet of successful projects ranging from private residences to large scale mixed-use developments including hotels, galleries, restaurants, and condominiums.
