Maíson Design/Build aims to change the standard of how architecture today is constructed as well as perceived. For decades architecture has carried the connotation of “luxury” with it; developing into a service that only few can provide, as well as afford. One of the basic biological needs to survive is shelter. Shelter can be defined as:
"A constructed inhabitable space that protects from the elements." Shelter is essential to human life, yet it is treated as if it were a luxury. If the fundamental purpose of architecture is a shelter, than what governs it's availability? Architecture is something that surrounds us daily and can have a profound impact on its audience; it inherently wants to serve a greater purpose than just a building. Architecture does not have to be expressed via some heavy conceptual design or employ large expensive materials. Architecture can be expressed simply through four walls and a roof.
Architecture should be available to anyone and everyone. Architects possess an incredible ability to design for the human experience in any given space or situation.
