Ten to One refers to ten to one odds, making happen the implausible, making spectacular the everyday. Our work is driven by the belief that in large the built environment is not reflective of the lives of its occupants nor actively engaged in a greater urban and environmental narrative. We work to create spectacles of beauty from the workings of the lives which inhabit each project. We expand the practical boundaries of architecture to include strategic and sustainable planning and construction, to make projects thrive from within their context. Each project, small and large, is its own domestic urbanism, entertaining its users and celebrating their endeavors.
We develop exciting designs in close collaboration with our clients. We work throughout the design process to manage budget, schedule, and all aspects of the project as a proactive advocate for our clients. We work to coordinate between client, contractor, and the entire team through the construction process to successful completion.
Ten to One currently has nearly a dozen active projects ranging from furniture, art collaborations, commercial, institutional, and residential interior renovations, new homes, and urban planning projects. Ten to One opened shop in 2012 having been developed since 2004 by Garrick Jones in parallel with his work as Partner-Track Studio Director with the design and development firm Della Valle Bernheimer (2005-2011) and Senior Architect and Designer with Diller Scofidio + Renfro (2011-2012). Garrick Jones received his Master of Architecture Degree from the Harvard Graduate School of Design and has worked as a published and recognized Architectural Designer in New York since the mid-nineties.
