Very cool modern town-house. Public rooms are raised up where they get more light and views. And the large “bay windows” actually look out over Casco Bay.
Excellent collage of rough and refined materials.
Another great industrial-inspired building in Portland, ME. Rich color is used on inexpensive corrugated siding… laser-cut stainless steel sign, wrapped around an industrial light fixture… excellent composition and use of accent material around key door and window locations.

This is a “random” industrial building in Portland, Maine. Don’t be deceived by the industrial materials– beneath lies a very thoughtful detailing strategy.
