April 2018  (No. 68)
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.
DMA Studio

DMA has some new faces around the studio these days. Billy joined us a few months ago, he is a recent graduate of the University of Maine at Augusta Architecture program. More recently, Scott started working from Rhode Island as he makes his way to Maine. Scott and David met while at Roger Williams University (at the time it was Roger Williams College), and were roommates for 5 years while going through architecture school. You can see a profile of all of us at DMA here.
Homage Restaurant

Have you eaten at Freeport's newest restaurant yet? After the Corsican Restaurant burned to the ground a couple years ago, the owners hired DMA to redesign a new restaurant similar to the old design but with many updates and upgrades. Since that time they decided to lease the building, and it's now home to Homage Restaurant. We will take photos this spring.
Norway Planning Board

We recently were able to present two projects during the same evening in front of the Norway Planning Board. Both cottages, one on Norway Lake and one on Hobbs Pond, were unanimously approved. We look forward to finalizing the design of both projects and to seeing them under construction.
Harpswell Get Away

Interior drywall is complete and painting is just about to begin at the Harpswell Get Away. Thermory decking on the water-side deck has been completed, and the cable-rail system is being constructed. The solid bronze railing system on the interior is being fabricated, and will contrast nicely with the wood floor. Construction by Oceanside Builders.


The next show for The Doppelbloopers , Bath's favorite improv group, is Friday April 13 at 8pm at the Bath Golf Club. Special guest is Pete Kilpatrick who has been voted Maine's Best Act by Portland Best Music Awards 4 times . You can purchase tickets here for this special Friday the 13th / horror movie themed night.

Munjoy Apartment

The exterior is looking great at this Munjoy Hill apartment project that DMA designed this past fall. A two-family house was in desperate need of some TLC. The interior was gutted to provide an upgrade of insulation and finishes, and a portion of the exterior was shored up so that a new foundation could be constructed.

Views from the Jobsite

The Dunvegan is wearing a big skirt, but that is to protect the stonework from freezing. If it would ever warm up this spring, we would get to see the beautiful Maine stone being used as a base to the castle tower. Construction  by Colt Kwaitkowsky.
On the Drawing Board

DMA is in the planning phases for a new Bike Cafe and Bar, as well as a co-working office space on the second floor. This project is a creative re-use of an existing, underutilized building.
