March 2016 (No. 43)

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.

Alisson’s Restaurant

Not since opening in 1984 has Alisson’s Restarant, located in the heart of Kennbunkport’s Dock Square, received a makeover.  DMA reorganized the dining area by relocating restrooms and providing both flexible as well as various styles of seating with built-in booths, areas for high-tops and semi-private seating areas, plus Douglas Fir accent walls, some of which was back-lit. Lighting by Greg Day Lighting, Interior design by Jeanne Handy Designs, and amazing construction by Richardson Services. Allisons Restaurant

Phases of Design

David spent a recent morning at the West Bath Elementary school leading 3rd, 4th and 5th graders through a presentation on the different phases of design as they prepare to create their own outdoor classroom. The time flew by as they were very engaged and peppered him with fantastic questions. We are all very excited to see what they come up with for their design. Ms. Jarvis has a great group of kids in her class! WB-Elem

Welcome Dan!

DMA would like to welcome Dan Ceglinski to the studio.  Dan spent some time with us six years ago, but went on to another job.  He is back with us and seems excited to work on some great projects we have in the office. 20160302_115252

Views from the job site

The Bridge House in Georgetown now has both a roof and windows, plus siding is well underway.  The views from almost every room are spectacular. The bridge provides a dramatic entrance from the high side of the steep slope and access the house is much easier then before. Construction by Senecal Construction Services. 20160226_161848

Lunch and Learn

Our next Lunch and Learn is Monday March 21st at noon in our office. Sponsored by ReVision Energy out of Portland. ReVision Energy was established in 2008, and in 2014 had already installed over 7 megawatts of solar PV. If you are interested in solar power and food, please contact Cathy. The photo is a install by ReVision Energy of one of our near net-zero projects, the Re-Modular. Re-Modular

Views from the Job site

Are you familiar with this view?  For over 10 years this elevator shaft has been sticking out of it’s foundation along Route One in Scarborough as an abandoned job site. A new two-story shell, designed by CWS Architects, will finally cover this elevator shaft.  DMA is designing the new 4,200 sf Irish pub, O’Reilly’s Cure, which will be on the first floor.  Ledgewood Construction is building the shell and restaurant. 20160225_113852

On the Drawing Board

DMA will be turning the Goose Rock House from a summer-only ranch into a year-round modern cottage.  New large openings, a glass railing deck, and a new screen porch will offer wonderful views to Cape Small Harbor. scene1
