residential and commercial condo development

  downtown ny / in progress


This downtown NY condo and commercial building is the first project in development as our collaborative venture JCCo. The faćade design consists of a gradated patterning of corbelled bricks and monolithic windows. Bricks are arrayed in varying depths and patterns diagonally across the facade, gradually stepping out as the building rises, with finishes altering from a granular matte at the bottom to smooth glazed at the top. Monolithic windows, including protruding windows and retractable window walls, stretch in widening proportions from the edges toward the building’s corner.

beggar's wharf townhouses

  rockland, maine / in progress


In collaboration with Rockland Maine City Planning / Framing other sides of the Beggar's Wharf Arts Complex full block development are townhouses and artist-in-residence work/live studios above a primarily retail ground floor. The townhouses are accessed from common lobbies and esplanades at the street and sculpture garden at the block's center. The townhouses are split-level from front to back with stairs and landings running axially across the middle. Each space is its own floor, allowing distinctive privacies within each space while simultaneously connecting between kitchen and living room, living and study, parents and children's rooms, bedrooms and studio,. Each space can have views to or through adjacent spaces as well as outward to exterior views and terraces. Spaces are framed on three sides by a c-shaped concrete shell, on a fourth side by a steel core, with the ends open, glazed, or with retractable walls.

bedford stuyvesant community innovation campus

  brooklyn, ny / in progress


Ten to One has been commissioned by the local nonprofit Ember Charter Schools to design the speculative Bedford Stuyvesant Community Innovation Campus (CIC) in Brooklyn NY.

CIC multiplies by 2 the development potential of the full block site with a hybrid park and full build-out development; a holistic mixed-use complex traversable as a park. The hybrid landscape is opened to provide light and view and sloped up and down to provide access. The myriad of programming is staged along continuous networks of promenades, break out ramps, recreation spaces, atriums and commons. The roof park and community programming are accessible by stepped promenades from the street. Commercial and office spaces line these promenades and commons. School programming is accessible by ramps winding around interior atriums.

CIC, inspired by the socio-economic successes of university and college campuses as well as such projects as the Teachers Village in Newark NJ, encapsulates a holistic community vitalization strategy that will achieve three important aims: 1) draw in much needed resources such as jobs, affordable housing, innovative schools and all the proposed CIC programs; 2) support the ongoing residence and increase vitality of the historic resident communities; and 3) maximize and catalyze existing assets such as cultural capital, thought leadership, and underutilized real estate.

CIC includes; 3 community schools grades K to 12; community and cultural centers; affordable mixed-income, teacher and student housing; retail and makers-market space; co-working and nonprofit space; multi-level indoor and outdoor recreation spaces; rooftop urban farms and solar energy canopies.
