DMA Newsletter
January 2019  (No. 77)
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.
Happy New Year!

All of us at David Matero Architecture would like to wish our family, friends, and, especially our clients, a Merry Christmas and a Happy Year! DMA had another successful year last year and are looking for forward to continuing our growing relationships into 2019. None of this would be possible without the trust our clients have in us to provide them with our best design and architectural service.
Views from the Job Site

The views are just stunning at our Small Point Connector under construction by Frohmiller Construction. DMA was able to re-organize a cobbled together connector with new roof lines and incredible living spaces in this family summer cottage compound. Did we mention the views?
AIA Annual Meeting

AIA Maine's Annual meeting took place earlier this month to welcome in new president Jesse Thompson and thank out-going president Kay Rosa Stevens. In addition, Maine AIA also thanked retiring treasurer John Morris, who is also retiring from architecture, as well as awarded Ron Conterio an honorary chapter member due to his retiring from Marvin Windows after many years.
Year in Review

2018 Was another growing year for DMA as we continue to work on a variety of interesting commercial and residential projects, from summer cottages like The Koop to year-round homes like Homewood Bound, and Ledgemere was featured in Decor Maine. A 20,000 sf renovation for DOT in Wilton has yet to make it to our portfolio page but a wonderful upgrade to the bar at Alisson's Restaurant has. Look for upcoming projects next featured to be featured in Maine Homes by DownEast magazine and Maine Home + Design.

Lake Front Link

Behind the main house, but still with views of the lake, DMA added new living spaces above two separate garages at the Lake Front Link. A new guest cottage will include living spaces and bedrooms linked by the new main entrance and screened porch. The end result should be a much more cohesive design integrating living spaces and garages on this family compound. Construction by Rideout & Turner.
On the Drawing Board

DMA is working closely with  builder David Chartier Building and Remodeling and  clients and  who are looking to retire to the coast of Maine. While their interest is in a more traditional look to their house, the energy efficiency of this house will be anything but "traditional." The wall system will be insulated to more than double Maine's current energy standards.

Merry Christmas from Otter Way in Brunswick
