ONE.10.STUDIO strives to deliver a built project rather than only a design.

An architect’s dream is to realize design through built work. Our Studio of architects leads a complete inclusive process from the inception of our client’s ideas through construction management to owner occupancy, realizing our client’s dreams. This notion differentiates us from many architectural practices. Mies van der Rohe summarized it best when he said “Architecture begins when you place two bricks carefully together”


ONE.10.STUDIO strives to deliver a product rather than only the design portion of a process.

This notion differentiates us from many architectural practices. An architect’s dream is to realize the design through the built work. Our Studio of architects leads a complete process from the germ of our Client’s ideas to construction management to owner occupancy, realizing our client’s dreams.



ONE.10.STUDIO incorporates a true team collaborative process.

We assemble teams tailored to individual projects and clients, allowing the project to develop its own personality. The core of the team is based around the creative and talented architects of ONE 10 STUDIO. Through a shared vision, Patrick and Clete, like all winning teams understand each other’s strengths. Focusing on these strengths allows for a true team effort where all succeed, especially our clients. Creative work necessitates clear communication. Our open studio provides a collegial environment enhancing communication where the sum of the efforts far exceeds any one individual accomplishment. Our motto throughout our studio culture is “the best idea wins”. Client engagement is crucial to our process and we invite our clients to be a part of the process, which in turn creates lasting friendships. It is developing these relationships that measure our true success.
