Ten to One

 designs for and about people.


Ten to One, founded by Garrick Jones, is a Brooklyn based design studio that in 6 years has completed over 80 projects in 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 high end residential to urban revitalization projects. Each project informs the next.

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 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.

Ten to One advocates for equity and sustainability in our projects as well as our practice. Ten to One invests a minimum of 10% - currently 15% - 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.
