Project Manager

We are looking for a project manager. Do you know an architect with five years of experience? Does he or she want to work in Maine’s Cool Little City? If so, please forward our job posting and have them contact me, cathy@davidmatero.com. We offer a studio environment that involves a cardio challenge to get to work, competitive pay and health benefits.


Views from the job site

Near Boothbay Harbor in Southport, this seaside cottage is getting a complete makeover by Tim Andrews & Sons. New windows as well as a new insulation package will create an energy efficient house, and the views opened up to the sunset over the ocean will be spectacular. Scheduled completion is before the summer vacation season. IMG_7054

So You Think You Know Bath

It is not hyperbole when we say So You Think You Know Bath IX might be one of the most fun evenings you can have in our city. Inspired by the 1970s PBS show So You Think You Know Maine, SYTYKB is Main Street Bath’s largest fundraiser. Due to its popularity, this year the event is being held at a larger venue, the Long Reach Hall at the Maine Maritime Museum on Friday March 20. Contact us for tickets or visit the MSB website for a guaranteed night of fun, trivia, food/drink, and silent auctions. Pictured is the view that David has while he operates the spot light. sytykb

Morse High School

Regional School Unit 1 has been granted Maine state approval to construct a new high school or completely renovate the existing high school. Constructed in 1928 (postcard from the Boston Public Library), the existing high school was added onto in the 1960’s. David, along with eight other community members, is on the Building Committee. The existing building is being studied and potential sites are being researched to determine if the next step is to build new or renovate. morse-hs

Breaking and Entering

The minute long video is either titled “What we do when clients don’t pay their bill” or “What we do when we forget the keys to measure a house”. Just joking, this unheated house in Georgetown is due for an addition/renovation by Senecal Construction Services and the sliding basement door is solidly frozen shut. Due to be demolished anyway, the owner told us to break the glass to gain entry…so we did. hammer-time

On the Drawing Board

A contemporary home on the water in Freeport is the subject our of rendering this month. A improved flow through the living spaces is achieved via internal reorganization, but a new foyer, mud room, and connection to the garage was the reason to build a quick model to review design ideas. Still in the design phase, we are working remotely with the clients who are very engaged with the design process. Octogon-ViewB
