MAISON ORIONmez – ohn oh – rye – on ] – The House of Orion

MAISON ORION ℠ is a specialized architecture studio that prioritizes human experience in the built environment. Our passion and specialty is the creation of building and spaces that delight all the body’s senses. The human experience of the world is multi-sensory, and much of our time is spent in designed spaces, both indoors and outside. Bad lighting, harsh sounds, uncomfortable seating, ugly signage, and flimsy materials attack our senses and dignity at every turn. Our focus is to design places that make people feel comfortable, welcomed, cared for and loved. In this environment we are well poised to do our best work, to live life richly, foster meaningful connections and feel at peace.

Our references and inspirations come from myriad sources, but a borrowed quote from the Slow Food Manifesto expresses the motivations that underpin all the work:

A firm defense of quiet material pleasure is the only way to oppose the universal folly of Fast Life.
