March 2019  (No. 79)
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.
Welcome New Friends

We enjoyed meeting new friends recently at the Maine Home and Remodeling show in Portland. David and I spent the weekend talking to some people who knew our work and others who were introduced to our portfolio. Welcome to our monthly newsletter where we briefly update you on our projects and our community.
Views from the Job Site

The Lake Front Link in Lovell is moving along nicely. All framed in and all the windows installed, Rideout and Turner have been able to manage good progress despite the lovely Maine winter. The great room will be sunny and light-filled and views of the lake just past the main house. 

Our office will be attending the upcoming Northeast Sustainable Energy Association conference in Boston. Although it is difficult to leave the office for a couple of days, it is vital that we continue educating ourselves in energy efficient detailing and products to give our clients the best design services that we can.
Marvin Integrity

The newest Marvin Integrity national window catalog came out recently and we noticed something familiar in it...our Couple's Cottage is featured in their catalog, twice actually. Maine is well represented as both Kevin Brown Architecture and Caleb Johnson Studio have projects in the catalog, too.

The Doppelbloopers are back on March 16 at the Bath Golf Club. Bath's favorite improv group is back on stage after a winter break. Opening up for them is special guest and Elton John tribute artist, Gerald Brann of Yellow Brick Road. Tickets are available here. This will be a good warmup for his full band playing the waterfront park on Sunday September 1, you will want to mark your calendar for that Main Street Bath sponsored concert!
Taliesin West

David and I flew to Phoenix for one of David's childhood friend's daughter's wedding (to an architect, coincidentally). Being married to an architect means visits to architectural gems wherever you go. We visited Taliesin West, Frank Lloyd Wright's experiment in the desert, and his winter home and studio. A perfect example of organic architecture that promotes an integration of the building and nature, exemplified throughout the compound of residences, studios, and theaters. A wonderful tour even if you are not an architect.
Dr David Vocal

Finishing touches and the new dentist office for Dr David Vocal in Brunswick will be up and running. A renovation behind the Camden National Bank building, the new office will have five brand new exam rooms with state of the art equipment and will be fully ADA accessible, which is a far cry from the old offices of Dr Vocal. Construction by RDB Construction.
On the Drawing Board

Dealing with a tricky angled summer cottage in Harpswell, DMA is designing a year-round addition to allow the owners to visit any time of the year, which will require being able to open up to the cottage in the summer but close the un-insulated part of the house in the winter.
