Welcome to our newsletter. Once a month we will update you with news about David Matero Architecture and our community. We welcome your comments, questions and feedback.
Island View Cottage
An existing, dilapidated and non-conforming cottage was torn down to construct a new cottage in the same footprint. The challenge was to create a single-story, ocean-front cottage to fit into the neighborhood. Built for year-round living, Island View Cottage is beginning its life as a vacation rental property. Construction by Bachman Construction.
Otter Way
We love photos from our clients. Otter Way is a 2,000 sf modern take on a farm house. With very specific requirements in layout and desires from the owner, this will create a unique home designed just for them. Sited and designed with energy efficiency in mind, the owners are slowly moving in. Construction by Corey Rattleff.
CCAC Community Book
From Home in Bunny Slippers: Creations from a Community in the Weirdest Year Ever is a collection of creative work compiled by the Chocolate Church Arts Center. The book reflects the ways in which communities across Maine responded to the COVID-19 pandemic and other turmoil of 2020, and found catharsis through the act of creation. DMA is a proud sponsor of this book and the CCAC. Place your order here for Christmas!
There is one benefit to being a mile high on scaffolding looking at details of a historic building that has some water leaks...the view. Maybe a mile high is an exaggeration, but David, Scott and the structural engineer, Eric, got to visit the Sagadahoc County Courthouse designed by Bath architect, Francis Fassett, in 1869, to review how to mitigate water infiltration around the tower.
Waterledge Harpswell
The owners of an ocean-front cottage wished to maintain features of the existing cottage, but with modern amenities. The cottage-feel was important and even the feel that the cottage had been added to over time was part of the design feature of Waterledge. Construction nearing completion by Oceanside Builders.
Views from the Job Site
The outline of Cliff Cottage addition is done. Foundations have been poured and backfilled, and framing to begin very soon by Chartier Building and Remodeling.

Centre Street Arts Gallery
Bath has a vibrant artist community. We are excited to bring the Centre Streets Arts Gallery to your attention and to help promote local art. Our first highlight artist is Kichung Lizee, who came to the US from Korea in the mid 60's. Interested in Abstract Expressionism, Lizee relies on creative intuition to close the gap between East and West and reach for universal creativity with brushes on rice paper.
