Partners

Thomas HickeyThomas Hickey, AIA, NCARBI draw inspiration not just from the projects we do, but from our clients themselves.

My work at GRADE is informed by my experience designing luxury retail and residential spaces both domestically and internationally for clients including Tiffany & Co., Victoria’s Secret and DKNY.

It all begins with listening to a client and assessing their needs. I love to cultivate enduring relationships with our clients that result in highly personal and bespoke work.

I have taught at Columbia University, the New Jersey Institute of Technology, and currently teach a design studio at Parsons School of Design, where in 2002 I met my fellow GRADE partner Edward Yedid.

Edward YedidEdward YedidDesign is about creating a lifestyle, and so we approach every aspect of a project from a holistic perspective. 

I've been a partner at GRADE since 2004. Prior, I worked with the notable interior designer Noel Jeffrey and have participated in various interiors events.

I have an innate desire to transform spaces into memorable and personalized environments, be it an expansive Tribeca loft or a ground-breaking hotel experience concept.

At GRADE, we execute every project with a highly attuned level of style and detail.
