DM|A Newsletter


April 2015 (No. 33)

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.

Deck House Tavern

We enjoyed the opening night for the Deck House Tavern at the Seacoast Adventure Park in Windham.  A sports bar, restaurant and pub, you can enjoy various seating and nice lighting throughout this 1 1/2 story restaurant.  DMA was responsible for the interior restaurant design only, as the shell was designed by others.  Perforated metal and wood beams above the bar, barn board and Douglas Fir accents, and a color scheme by Jeanne Handy Designs creates a very welcoming restaurant.

Welcome Gerald

Welcome to DMA, Gerald!  Gerald Weinand comes to us with many years of commercial and residential experience.  As Project Manager, Gerald will help in all aspects of DMA as we strive to provide even better service for our clients.  Gerald hails from Rockland where he lives with his wife, a teacher, and their three children.  He enjoys hiking, bike riding, soccer (no, it is not a prerequisite at DMA), and volleyball, and is the former chair of the Rockland Comprehensive Planning Commission.


Views from the job site

The interior is being framed out at the Wood House / Glass House project in North Bath by Bachman Construction.  With double thick walls and triple-glazing, this should create a very quiet master bedroom and office suite as well as a refuge from a bustling family when needed.  The material on the exterior wall is a smart vapor retarder that changes its permeability depending on the relative humidity. lambert

Think Spring

It may not feel like spring, but when it’s the home opener for the New England Revolution in Foxboro…spring has arrived.  David’s annual selfie with Oskar before kickoff.  While not enjoying a win in their first three games, the Revs settled for tie this day, and the Revs did recently break into the win column last week. revs-selfie

Hot Chocolate Jubilee

One of Chocolate Church Arts Center’s largest fundraisers, the bi-annual Hot Chocolate Jubilee continues to delight with some amazing local talent. Cathy performed in multiple musical acts as well as  the comedic Up-Down-Middle skit.  Just another reason why attending live events in Bath is so much fun.  Cathy’s next gig is as stage manager for the upcoming play, Streetcar Named Desire, at the CCAC April 10-12 and 17-19.   Streetcar is a special 35th anniversary production by Studio Theater of Bath. hot-choc


David enjoyed a couple days in Boston at the New England Sustainable Energy Association conference learning about energy efficient design and details.  David spent a full-day workshop, The Brand Camp, with Mitch Anthony from the firm Clarity.  A thoughtful and engaging day with other like-minded professionals on marketing and branding your business.  Catching up with fellow Oxford Hills High School alum and architect, Jon, principal with the firm Schwartz-Silver is always a highlight. nesea

On the Drawing Board

DMA has begun working on a waterfront cottage in Georgetown that involves very strict shoreland zoning restrictions due to area and volume expansion.  The first scheme involved building a bridge from grade to the upper floor of the cottage to minimize the impact on the existing ledge.  DMA is continuing to work with the clients and Senecal Construction Services to push the upper floor back past the shoreland restricted zone to allow for additional ceiling and roof heights. water-view-2
