“Justin (Of Origin) approached our design needs and space requirements with intentional thought and expertise as well as his optimism for what was possible. We are very pleased with the results and more importantly, so are our guests. Justin is passionate about well-crafted spaces that reflect the stakeholder’s goals and community’s needs, and that create authentic experiences.”

— Ben Lehman Co-owner and Chief Executive Janitor CREMA, Coffee Roasters


“As the director of a community of creative artists and dreamers, the bar is pretty high for us to inspire and fuel the creative class. We’re only able to do that with the other artists and creators that we collaborate with, and Of Origin Design is an integral part of that team for us. We first met Justin when we found ourselves with a vision and a timeline that to us, felt potentially impossible. He came alongside of us to with an incredible attitude and work ethic, and proceeded to blow us away with his work and creativity. His ability to lead well and see a project through, combined with his vision and creativity in architecture and design makes him a breath of fresh air and a joy to work with. We can’t wait to get started on the next project.”

Home Addition

“When lost in planning the ideas and details of a home addition, Of Origin Design was recommended to us by a friend. Justin brought order to the project with his thoughtful approach to our space, ideas, and family’s needs by creating a palette of options that helped us navigate the innumerable choices. Through the process we even discovered new options that we wouldn’t have dreamt up on our own and managed to avoid a few costly mistakes along the way.  We are thoroughly pleased with our final design plan and will certainly call upon Of Origin Design Studios again in the future.”

Johnston Residence

Home Renovation

“My wife and I decided to do a major renovation to our 40 year old Brentwood, TN home. We had a lot of ideas for what we wanted to do but didn’t know how to articulate it to a contractor, who needed to see design plans, types of materials, and measurements. Enter Justin Orton. He was super easy to work with. We were on a limited budget so he worked with us on price, which was very reasonable for what we got. He met with us several times and showed us sketches for the spaces we wanted renovated. We gave him feedback, and he went back to the drawing board. Back and forth we went until we achieved a beautiful result. He also stopped by several times during construction for quality control, making sure it was being done right, which is crucial. Couldn’t be happier!”

Harper Residence

Home Renovation

“Of Origin design does top notch work! We had designs created for a basement remodel as well as an addition to our existing deck. Justin is extremely professional, knowledgeable, and skilled at design creation. He gave me many excellent suggestions and recommendations that were incorporated into the plans. Justin is very thorough, reliable and has impeccable integrity. He met all deadlines and has very fair rates. Justin is also a pleasure to work with! I highly recommend him. You will not be disappointed.”
