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.
Patriot Insurance

We recently received new photos of the Patriot Insurance Company from Peter Urbanski Photography. The building is settling into the site nicely, and a photo shoot on the weekend means no cars in the parking lot. Check out our new portfolio of Patriot Insurance here.
Homewood Bound

DMA spent the afternoon recently at Homewood Bound in Yarmouth with Rachel Sieben Photography and Honey Bee Productions, LLC. Rachel photographed a house we designed that was constructed by Rideout & Turner last year. Honey Bee brought a drone for some views above. The view here shows 3 projects that DMA has completed in this home association.
MeDOT Region 3 Headquarters

Construction of the 12,000 sf office headquarters for the Maine Department of Transportation  Region 3 headquarters is nearing completion by Blaine Casey Building Contractor, Inc. A renovation of an existing 2 story building, DMA added a new elevator and stair enclosure, and completely redesigned the interior.
Mad Hatter's Ball

Final call for tickets to the Mad Hatter's Ball at the Bath Library Park on Saturday August 11 from 6:30 to 10 pm. One of MSB's largest fundraisers, the gala is sure to be a blast with great food and drinks...cocktail attire and a creative hat is encouraged. Music by Pat Colwell and the Soul Sensations. Tickets are available at our office for $50 each, please email Cathy to arrange tickets or stop by our office. You can help by sharing this video on your facebook page!

Bye Bye Birdie

David is butting in here to brag about Cathy absolutely killing it in Main State Music Theater's production of Bye Bye Birdie. She literally brought the house down with her performance and her song "A Mother Doesn't Matter Anymore". You can check out the review of the show here in Broadway World of the two sold out shows on the main stage July 30th.
Yarmouth Clipper

We visited the Yarmouth Clipper in preparation for an upcoming photo shoot. The interior is complete, much of it was constructed by the owner and only a couple of exterior details need to be finished this summer. This 3,200 sf house was very close to net zero last year.
On the Drawing Board

Often, shoreland zoning requirements create some challenges, but also some unique responses. To expand a cottage in Bowdoin along the Cathance River, DMA has designed a flat roof, which allows full use of the second floor, creating a 1,600 sf 2-story house out of a tiny cottage. This also opens up some incredible views while remaining within the existing footprint.
