Architecture Issue

The Get Away was one of 21 projects chosen to be part of Maine Home + Design's annual Architecture issue (December). Each year MH+D chooses projects from various architects in the state to highlight. The Get Away was completed this year by Oceanside Builders, and includes unique features like a two-story screen porch and hidden sliding glass door with beautiful water views. 
Moody Grays

Moody Grays, DMA's second project with a client who updated and renovated a somewhat run down and tired Queen Anne two-family house on Munjoy Hill in Portland. Maintaining the original character of the exterior, the interior was completely gutted and re-insulated to make a much more comfortable single family residence, complete with new living space in the attic.

Centre Street Bakery

The Centre Street Bakery's soft opening was this past weekend. DMA helped turn this 1,800 sf space into a new "old" French bakery, serving fresh bread, croissants, and lunch goods. Uncovering brick walls and designing wood accent walls and custom metal and wood shelves, along with a very interesting tin-like ceiling, created an uplifting and elegant bakery in the heart of Bath. Construction by Frohmiller Construction.
Twisted Christmas

The 7th annual Twisted Christmas is back December 13 and 14 at 8pm at the Winter Street Center in Bath. Studio Theatre of Bath presents an offbeat evening of music and merriment. A variety show with comedy, music and improv. It's naughty and nice so leave the kiddo's at home. Tickets are $15 here, or $18 at the door.
Stone Barn

The  Stone Barn  is looking striking with its Thermory vertical siding and Douglas Fir post on a natural stone base. The small windows facing the road offer privacy and a barn aesthetic. Construction by  Chartier Building and Remodeling .

On the Drawing Board

DMA is designing a house replacement in West Bath that will take a modern approach to opening up views and spaces for a couple moving to Maine. Along with design input from the client on how they live, an open plan, but with reading nooks, and separate writing and art studios, makes the design truly unique to the client.
