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.

Featured in houzz

Our tree house / play house was recently featured in houzz, A Hideaway for all Ages Perched Among the Trees in Maine.  Although not technically a tree house (it’s hard to find pine trees big enough to handle a structure this size), this Adirondack camp is so well nestled among the trees that you feel part of them when you are inside.

Maine Development Center

David recently attended the Maine Downtown Center Conference, sponsored by the Maine Development Foundation, Basics, Building Blocks, and Innovation, in Brunswick.  It was held at the beautiful First Parish Church which is on the National Register of Historic Places.  Many dignitaries have spoken at this church, but one of the more important moments in our nation’s history was a vision that Harriot Beecher Stowe had, while sitting at pew #23, that inspired her to write Uncle Tom’s Cabin.


Views from the job site

The Yarmouth Clipper has taken shape.  Framing is complete and the screen porch needs only screens.  Triple-glazed south-facing  summer-shaded windows will passively heat this house.  Combined with thick walls and roof as well as a good air-sealing techniques, it is scheduled to be energy net-zero once solar panels are installed. yarmouth-clipper

Morse Tennis

The Morse boys tennis team is off to a great start, going 7-0 to begin the season and leading the league.  The team has been dealing with difficult weather, but that seems to have turned around.  Pictured is Oskar who plays second doubles. oskar-tennis

This April marks two anniversaries for David.  Seven years ago David, along with Greg Day, started DayMatero Studio (providing lighting and architectural design).  Four years ago David started David Matero Architecture, specializing in design and planning services for commercial and residential projects. For seven years we have had the privilege to work with many different clients on a variety of projects.  Our projects are as diverse as the relationships we have made on the way. dma2015

On the Drawing Board

DMA is designing an addition / renovation to a contemporary home in Harpswell.  Because of it’s proximity to the water there will be strict shoreland zoning guidelines.  The preliminary concept includes increasing the wonderful views to the water and adding a two level screen porch that will include a sleeping porch attached to the master bedroom. harpswell
