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.
We've Moved!

After 12 years at a 4th floor walk-up studio along Front Street, DMA has taken over the 2nd floor at 49 Centre Street, still in Bath. I know many of you are going to miss those stairs at our old office (we sure are!), but our new space was completely gutted and redone by Frohmiller Construction and now includes new insulation and windows, and only 20 steps to the office. Thank you to Jeanne Handy Designs for interiors help.
Bog Lake Cottage

We visited Bog Lake Cottage recently on a weekend get away to Machias and Lubec. The owner is doing much of the work himself, and what has been done is looking great. This modern cottage is the talk of the lake, but nobody argues with the incredible views towards the water and the comfortable interior. 
For the Winn

Very soon the owners of For the Winn get to move into their new home. Some important elements remain, like stair and porch railings, but electrical, plumbing, and cabinets are all in. Landscaping will be last, but the natural landscape surrounding this home is spectacular. Interior Design by Jeanne Handy Designs, construction by Frohmiller Construction

The exterior of Waterledge is just about complete, and rough-in has started on the interior. This cottage is reminiscent of the original cottage on the property to keep the essence of the site intact as it holds many memories for the owners. Construction by Oceanside Builders.

In an effort to support our downtown, the west side of Front Street has been opened up to pedestrians only to enable easier social distancing. Parking is still available along the east side of Front Street. Along other streets, parklets are popping up. It's safe to come outside and support our downtown!

Otter Way

Some of the details and craftsmanship is coming alive at Otter Way, especially these cantilevered stairs in the Great Room. This wood accent wall separates the Dining Room from the Living Room, and helps anchor each individual tread with slanted metal angles and metal balusters. Interior design by the owner and  Jeanne Handy Designs. Construction by Corey Rattleff.

On the Drawing Board

Severe shoreland restrictions created quite a challenge for a small addition in Brunswick. By designing a flat to low slope roof we were able to squeeze in the addition. Because the entrance to the site is from above we are proposing a vegetated roof.
