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.
Linda Beans Maine Kitchen
Due to unforeseen conflicts with underground power, DMA re-presented at the Freeport Planning Board and received another approval for an addition to the Linda Bean Maine Kitchen & Topside Tavern. Additional outdoor deck seating and a walk-up ice cream shop is under design. Construction later this year by Zachau Construction.
Warren Mechanical
Planning board approval was granted in Westbrook for a new office and warehouse along the Warren Ave. corridor for Warren Mechanical. DMA designed the original expansion a few years ago, and left an area for a new building and parking in the original design.
Details are starting to emerge at Clifden, a modern, energy efficient, home for an architect (not anyone at DMA, an architect from CT). This custom bracket for an roof was designed so that water would not sit on the anchor and seep into the wood joints. Construction by Oceanside Builders, Interior design by Jeanne Handy Designs.
Narrow View
By placing our massing model on Google Earth we were able to show the client how the house fits into the topography and takes advantage of water and ledge out-cropping views. The contractor set up a ladder to show the view from the house. Construction later this year by Senecal Construction Services.
Cold Spring Farm
Sometimes a major component to a design is just proving that the design meets code. For shoreland zoning projects, that can be challenging when you need to determine the area and volume of the existing house and expansion. Relying on our 3d programs has made this much simpler to design and explain to code officers and planning boards. Construction later this year by Chartier Building and Remodeling.
Centre Street Arts Gallery
Jackie Melissas is a ceramicist, painter, printmaker, book illustrator, and teacher. She is drawn to the sensual nature of clay and fire using organic materials. Originally from Boston, she has exhibited nationally and internationally, and some of her work can be found at Centre Street Arts Gallery, 11 Centre Street in Bath.
