Principal David Merlin is currently serving as a consultant on the Technical Evaluation Committee for Jefferson Parishes. The Jefferson Parish Technical Evaluation Committee evaluates responses of consultants applying to perform architectural, engineering, or survey services for the parish. The committee meets at least once a month to determine consultant’s capabilities and makes recommendations to the parish council and president. The position on the committee is a volunteer appointment made by the American Institute of Architects.
Principal Charles Jones is currently serving as the Co-Chair of the Exhibit Committee forfutureNOLA, a year-long engagement led by AIA & NOFA to pro-actively ask creatives of all ages, backgrounds, cultures, and occupations - How do you envision New Orleans over the next 300 years? Throughout this upcoming 2017-2018 year, futureNOLA will engage in an international competition, exhibition, gala, and publication, collectively offering a platform for individuals and teams to share their future of “The Crescent City” with professionals, politicians, and the public.
Over the past 5 years, we have collaborated with Bayne Dickinson Architect, APAC (BDA) on a wide range of projects across Southeastern Louisiana. The outcome of this time spent together has resulted in the merging of our two firms at the end of 2017. Coincidentally, this event coincides with the 15 year anniversary of Bayne Dickinson Architect, APAC.
Now combined, our firm is guided by more than 50 years of experience in the architectural profession. We will continue to expand our range of services including full architectural services, design consulting, technology consulting, façade consulting, and feasibility analysis, and LEED compliance. Our diverse portfolio of work includes education, cultural, healthcare, office, residential, and retail projects for a variety of private, corporate, and institutional clients.
Bayne Dickinson has joined our leadership as a Principal and Technical Director. Bayne brings a high level of technical expertise to our firm’s projects, from conception through to completion. Bayne’s work has been recognized with numerous awards from the AIA Louisiana, AIA Baton Rouge, and the Baton Rouge Growth Coalition. Bayne’s greatest interest and enthusiasm centers around the process of bringing high-quality design solutions into reality, where the integrity of the design is molded into the physical world through drawings, modeling, and the construction process. His ability to maintain high levels of design through creative technical resolution makes him an invaluable asset to One to One Design.
We will continue operating out of two offices in New Orleans and Baton Rouge.

15 YEAR HISTORY
The relationship between One to One and Bayne Dickinson dates back to 2004, when One to One principal Charles Jones began working for Ford|Dickinson while studying architecture at Louisiana State University. From 2004-2007, he worked closely with Ford|Dickinson on a number of notable projects, including Lamar Advertising Company, Raising Cane’s Headquarters, and Woman’s Hospital in Baton Rouge. Charles left Ford|Dickinson in 2007 to practice architecture in Los Angeles with internationally acclaimed architect Frank Gehry. Upon returning to Louisiana in 2011, he established One to One Design with David Merlin, and the two began collaborating with Bayne Dickinson on a number of projects. Since then, One to One and BDA have enjoyed a productive relationship collaborating on a large body of work together.
We are excited to announce that Principal Charles Jones and, our longest standing Project Designer, Robbie Mosby, are now professionally licensed architects in the state of Louisiana.
Mr. Mosby joined our team in the fall of 2014 after working in Mexico City at the award-winning architecture firm FR-EE (Fernando Romero Enterprise). Since then, he has greatly contributed to over 25 projects ranging from Highland Crossing Complex to Form-It. Throughout this time, he has maintained a high level of discipline in pursuing his professional license. His focus is a standard we hope to instill in all young professionals who work with us.
Charles began taking his tests in 2012 after moving back to New Orleans from Dubai and officially closed the deal four years, eleven months, and twenty-six days later - four days shy of the five-year expiration clock!
All in all, we are proud to say that we now have 5 licensed architects on our team moving into the new year. The future is bright and full of new stamped drawings!
-One to One
Charles Jones, along with Emily Baker, will attend this exciting seminar in a continued effort to establish a long-term educational partnership between Tulane School of Architecture and the Precast Concrete Institute.
The PCI Foundation offers a program for architecture professors who wish to learn more about precast concrete design and how it can be taught in the university classroom or studio. The program will be a three-day intensive workshop that will include instruction from college professors already teaching precast as part of grants received from the PCI Foundation, precast industry experts, and architects with precast design experience.
The program will take place May 16-18 in Denver, Colorado with portions of the program taking place at the University of Colorado, Denver. Professors will learn the basics of precast concrete design for buildings and will be given tools that will assist them in teaching precast concepts to students. Additionally, the topics of integrated programs and partner relationships will be covered. At the end of the program, professors will receive “Precast in a Box” — a special resource designed to offer professors a selection of teaching tools that he or she can select to use in the classroom. During the field day, we will visit a precast fabricator, Denver architecture firm and several precast projects.
Content provided to professors interested in teaching precast design will include videos, books, case studies, precast details, and other useful materials. Many of the PCI Foundation-sponsored programs have offered integrated courses with either engineering or construction management departments. If professors from either of those departments wish to attend, it can be arranged.
Panel Discussion Topic : Open Source Architecture
Open-source sharing is commonly practiced within the world of software, tech and a burgeoning group of progressive disciplines. Architecture has been slow to develop a network of openness towards others. However, a handful of firms have publicly published items from construction details to downloadable plans. In this session, attendees will learn how architects are sharing successfully, how they are furthering their firm and the profession in the process, and the associated risks.
