Profile

Gradient was founded by Ben Krone in Brooklyn, New York in 2006. Originally conceived as a design collective exploring the intersections of graphic art and architecture, Gradient Architecture PLLC, is now a full service architecture and design firm specializing in cost effective means for producing high-end design through the use of computer-aided precision tools and manufacturing processes.

 

Gradient employs a philosophy of design that focuses heavily on process and operates free of limitations of project scale or typology. We believe that good design emerges from a thoughtful collaboration between client, architect, builder, and craftsperson. In all of our undertakings we seek to shape the client’s vision to the singularity of each site to create inspirational and compelling work with an emphasis on craft, materiality, and innovation.
