Built in 1904 by John Howard Stevens, son of John Calvin, this house was recently purchased by a young, local couple with a growing family and a love for design. We were tasked with reinventing the upstairs bedroom and turning it into a master suite with a bedroom, bathroom and office. We were able to use the owner's clear sense of direction to create what we think is a great marriage of classic and contemporary. The clean, simple modern lines leave room for the character of the original architecture to shine.
PORTLAND MAINE In late 2015, Erin Kiley and Nathaniel Baldwin, owners of the Flea For All, had decided to move their thriving 3 year old business into a space that they could call their own. They purchased a space at 585 Congress street, in the Hammond Heirs block. The building was originally built in the mid 1800's and their space had spent many of those years as a grocery store. Needless to say, this renovation had its fair share of surprises but we love how it turned out.
PORTLAND MAINE In late 2016 we began working with local baker Elise Richer to build out her own little corner of the baking world. The challenge of this particular project was the limited space. Through close collaboration, we were able to achieve a vibrant and efficient space that is now putting out some of the best baked goods in Maine. If you haven't stopped in, do your tastebuds a favor.
PORTLAND, MAINE A staple for quality and fashion in Portland for over 20 years, David Wood Clothiers on Commercial Street needed an update. The previous store was dark and felt smaller than it was and the owner longed to make better use of the spaces features. We removed dark carpet and restored and polished maple floors, and repainted the walls and the built ins a much lighter color. Additional built-ins, a completely new layout and a totally custom made steel and white oak multi-piece cash wrap topped off the renovation. Now, this store is a brilliantly light and airy space that serves as the perfect back drop for the special merchandise.

PORTLAND, ME Located on outer Congress Street in Portland, our project at Maine Nephrology Associates included the full fit up of an additional 2000 square feet of useful office space, and 4 new exam rooms.
Multi-Family, Cumberland Ave.
PORTLAND, ME This beautiful 19th Century mansard style 4-unit on the cusp of Munjoy Hill needed a serious face lift. Each unit got a full to-the-studs makeover, including new plumbing, electrical, and sheetrock all while maintaining the historical charm of the building. When we found the original tin ceilings behind sheet rock we restored them to their original beauty. Additionally, each unit got brand new kitchens complete with custom painted cabinetry, new appliances and honed granite countertops.
PORTLAND, ME If you've lived in Portland for any length of time you've probably atleast heard of Sangillo's Bar. The former occupant of the Tomaso's space was a neighborhood favorite, but was a little rough around the edges. The small space got a complete to-the-studs renovation to create a new neighborhood hang-out. The addition of a full commercial kitchen meant Tomaso's could serve a full (and delicious) menu. We planed down 3 inch thick heart pine boards to create a rustic yet smooth custom bar and faced it with stainless steel for a modern effect. We designed and built matching adjustable bar back shelving and installed new seating throughout.
PORTLAND, ME This fast growing business needed to update and expand their changing area to meet their clients' needs and to match the modern vibe the rest of the studio. We helped design a layout which included the addition of two modern showers, complete with fogged glass doors and sleek new tiles. Custom-built benches add to the functionality of the space. www.revecyclingstudio.com
PORTLAND, ME The renovation at K. Colette on Commercial Street in Portland's Old Port involved touching just about every surface in the space. The client wanted to take advantage of the space's qualities as well as make it functional. We played up the brick archways and huge windows with custom built shelving and versatile fixtures. We created a one of a kind cash wrap out of salvaged barn board, built a custom sliding barn door, designed and built a custom plate rack and created numerous other built ins and displays. The space got all new lighting and a brand new concrete floor was poured and polished.
PORTLAND, ME For Portland Dry Goods we wanted to give them the rich, rustic feel of barn board without the rough surface and higher price tag. We were able to create "faux" barn board out of unfinished pine by using a combination of stains and aging techniques. Additionally, we installed metal built-ins, hanging bars, created a custom modular dressing room and built decorative accents like their custom painted and framed peg board.
PORTLAND, ME The coolest barber in town needed to update his small space to accommodate his growing clientele. We took the long, narrow, dark space and brightened the walls and installed new laminate wood floors. The space was expanded by demolishing the whole back half of the existing store. The expansion allowed for the addition of a second barber station and shampoo bowl. The fresh look was topped off with all new lighting and sleek new barber chairs. We created a built in small half wall point of sale which gave our client a "home base" without losing too much floor space.
