DMA Newsletter
April 2020  (No. 92)
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.

Although our business has been affected, we feel extremely fortunate that we are able to safely work remotely and communicate effectively with various apps. Many of our clients in the past have been "from away" so we are comfortable with conference calls and screen sharing. 

By all of us doing our part and practicing social distancing we can flatten the curve, save our front line workers and caregivers, and make it quicker to the other side where we can break bread and toast with our family and friends in person again.

With so many people, families and business affected by COVID-19, however we find it difficult to send a newsletter marketing our company. Instead, we felt it would be appropriate to highlight some of our our restaurant projects and ask our readers to help support them by visiting their websites and ordering takeout.  
Centre Street Bakery

The Centre Street Bakery opened up this pastThanksgiving in Bath. Fortunately, existing brick walls were uncovered and helped create a French bakery image in the middle of Bath, and it's capped off by a wonderful "tin" ceiling. Construction by Frohmiller Construction. Visit their website Tuesday or Friday afternoon to pre-order your bread for Wednesday or Saturday pickup.
O'Reilly's Cure

O'Reilly's Cure in Scarborough, constructed by Ledgewood Construction, has  accent wood walls, concrete countertops, and metal elements to create a rustic-modern decor with high ceilings and large windows that is both light-filled during the day and a warm and inviting during the evening. Take-out is available 7 days a week, and they deliver at certain times, visit here.
Alisson's Restaurant

Alisson's Restaurant in Kennebunkport had been a local and tourist favorite for 40 years.  DMA completely changed the aesthetic with Douglas Fir accent walls to hide the tired brick to provide an entirely fresh new look. And it's still a local and tourist favorite.  Construction by Leo Richardson. Takeout is available 7 days a week with pre-paid orders, and you can also take-out beer and wine, by visiting here .
Linda Bean's Maine Kitchen

Linda Beans Maine Kitchen & Topside Tavern was a stunning transformation of space. Despite very low ceilings on the upper dining floor, the restaurant glows with appropriate lighting creating an intimate setting Construction by Zachau Construction . Take out is available 7 days a week, and it comes with a 10% discount, too, by visiting here.

Tao Yuan

We did not design the Tao Yuan Restaurant in Brunswick, but we did design the hydroponics greenhouse behind and associated with the restaurant and, when up and running, will support the restaurant by growing food fertilized by fish in the basement. Construction by PM Construction. Take out of their incredible food is available here.

Binga's Wingas

Binga's Wingas in Yarmouth fully integrated architecture and lighting. An extensive renovation to a 4,000 sf pizza joint, the basement became a sauce production facility and the first floor included a new kitchen and bar/restaurant with 36 seats. Closed Tuesdays, the Yarmouth location is open for take out here.
