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.
Goose Rock Main House

The Goose Rock Main House was recently completed, and we are very happy with the results. The all-black exterior compliments and contrasts with the all-white interior, which provides an elegant backdrop for views of Small Point Harbor and the Owner's art and furniture collection. The owner was very much involved, working with Jeanne Handy Designs, and Greg Day Lighting. Great attention to detail by Corey Rattleff, contractor.
Tao Yuan Approvals

It took some time, but the Tao Yuan Greenhouse was unanimously approved by the Brunswick Planning Board...again. During the detailed design phase of this rather complicated and intricate building, design changes were made which triggered a second review by the planning board. The project is off to shop drawings by PM Construction Co. as we now also have a building permit.
Views from the job site

Three quarters of the masonry has been punch-listed, and details such as the entrance canopies are coming together at the Patriot Insurance Company headquarters. The garden level has finished paint, and cabinets will be installed soon. Construction going smoothly by Landry/French.

Goose Ledge 

Goose Ledge House in Harpswell is out of the ground. Framing is flying and views have been opened up to Harpswell Sound. A ducted heat pump system will easily heat and cool this house because of the double-stud construction and triple-glazed windows. Construction by Oceanside Builders.

Eagle Island

We connected with past clients recently and enjoyed a trip out to Eagle Island, which is now a National Historic Landmark. Eagle Island was the home of Admiral Robert Peary, who, after several unsuccessful attempts, was the first to make it to the geographic North Pole in 1909. It closes at Labor Day, but put this on your list for next summer.
On the Drawing Board

There are many interesting sites along the coast of Maine, and especially in our neck of the woods. With views of the New Meadows River, this non-conforming, one-story house needs to be the same footprint as the existing house. Our job is to make it look like more of a cottage.
