DM|A Newsletter


September 2013 (No. 14)

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

Private Apartment

DM|A was able to revisit a apartment we designed a little while ago and update our portfolio. A couple with children off to college decided to down-size and relocate to southern Maine. DM|A and Greg Day Lighting completely renovated the second story apartment and used Douglas Fir boards to separate the entry and centrally located dining room. Lighting was used to integrate and highlight the architecture by grazing the two-sided stone fireplace and illuminate the beautiful color of the wood. so-maine-apt88

Employee of the Year

DM|A is happy to announce that Alex Rogers has been awarded Employee of the Year. This week marks her one year anniversary with DM|A. Alex helps produce the renderings that move a project forward as well as the construction details that are important to the firm’s profile and portfolio. Pictured are Alex and Dane at Cathy’s 50th surprise birthday party,in which Alex played a big part in by creating a Roaring 20’s music electro-mash-up with vintage video that capped off a great evening last April. alex

Bayside Bowl

One of our favorite projects, Bayside Bowl, now open for three years, is a great example of a hip and fresh look at a bowling alley with urban appeal. This month’s Downeast Magazine visited the center recently and compliments the focus on actual bowling (including hosting invitational tournaments) while providing a cool place for eating, socializing and music. DM|A also revisited Bayside Bowl recently with college roommate Doug Austin and his family. Pictured is Doug’s famous right leg kick just before a strike. 1098322_706629322687320_501

Katahdin 2013

An end of summer hike brought David and Oskar, as well as friends Joe, Jacob and Julian to Baxter State Park and the allure of Maine’s highest peak, Katahdin. Starting at the Roaring Brook Campground, the boys hiked to Chimney Pond, up the Dudley Trail to Pamola Peak, across Knife’s Edge to Baxter Peak. Their descent followed Hunt and the Abol trail. 9.5 Miles in 9 hours, the glorious weather to start turned to thick clouds at the top which, although dampened the view, did not dampen the spirits. The hike did claim David’s iPhone as a fall and tumble shattered the screen but, fortunately, did not result in anything else other then damaged pride. IMG_4034

Views from the Job Site

The Re-Modular is taking shape with the new garage and second floor addition now framed in Brunswick. With PV panels planned for the south facing roof, this house is projected to achieve net-zero energy standards. The energy use will reduced by using double stud walls filled with insulation, triple-glazed windows by Intus, and general good air-sealing practices. Construction by Alexander and Allen. remodular

On the drawing board

The Cove Side Abode in Harpswell is quickly moving forward with weekly design meetings with the owners. Under 2,000 sf, this open plan concept is designed with energy efficient features. A wonderful connection to the outdoors, the project includes a pergola-filled breezeway, outdoor fireplace and an existing outdoor kitchen and screen porch that all have quiet views of the water. cove-side-abod
