Description:Maison ORION is a multi-faceted design studio founded in 2007. While primarily engaged in the design of buildings, our focus is rather on questions of life and what qualities make for graceful and uplifting habitats for human beings. We explore architecture from its traditional roots - firmness, commodity and delight. Far from being traditional or nostalgic, we seek to engage in a dialogue with these fundamental and everlasting concerns. 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 pleasures is the only way to oppose the universal folly of Fast Life."
