DM/A Newsletter

September 2012

Welcome to our newsletter. Occasionally we will update you with news about David Matero Architecture. We welcome your comments, questions and feedback.

Federal Jacks Restaurant and Brew Pub, Kennebunk

DM/A designed a new deck and patio to create a completely new outdoor dining experience for Federal Jacks Restaurant, now open for the summer season on the water in Kennebunk. A new structural system, cable railings with built-in LED lighting, and Douglas Fir ceilings, the work is highlighted by the beautiful lighting design by Greg Day Lighting. Photo by Greg Day

Town Hall Place – Phase 2

In early 2010, Kip Stone purchased the old Grand City Department store in the heart of Brunswick. Working with David Matero, a multi-phase project was put together to completely renovate this 40,000 sf, two story brick building. In May 2011, phase 1 was completed with the opening of Cool As A Moose and all of the exterior work, resulting in a Brunswick Downtown Association award. This month, phase 2 will be complete, allowing the graphics and production department, Artforms, to be relocated to Brunswick. Credit must be given to the owner of Cool As A Moose and Artforms, Kip Stone, for the effort (and money) to renovate a old and tired building into a fully updated and modern structure that helps keep Brunswick vibrant.

Main Street Bath

David Matero was appointed to the board of Main Street Bath early this year. Was it a coincidence that soon thereafter Bath was the first Maine community to be awarded for excellence in revitalizing their “Main Street” by the National Trust for Historic Preservation? Yes, it is a coincidence. The hard work from community leaders and volunteers all year round is what keeps Bath a Place that Matters. Only five communities in the US receive a Great American Main Street Award each year. Main Street Bath

DM/A at Maine Boats Homes & Harbors Show

DM/A recently spent a three-day weekend in the Sustainable Living tent at the 10th annual Maine Homes Boats & Harbors Show. David and I met some great people, both visitors and other exhibitors, and hope to continue some of our conversations at a later time. Special thank you to Chuck Alexander from Alexander and Allen for constructing our custom Douglas Fir display Maine Boats Homes & Harbors 2012

On the Drawing Board…

Working to LEED certifiable standards, DM/A is designing a 1,700 sf, three bedroom, energy efficient house in the coastal community of Harpswell. Maximizing it’s site potential, the large, summer shaded widows will face due solar south while responding to the terrain to allow for a walk-out basement. DM/A is teaming with Oceanside Builders to bring this project forward. Coastal Retreat
