Featured Reviews for Portland, ME Architects and Building Designers

By Design
Portland, ME Architects and Building Designers
Aug 25, 2013
“We highly recommend architect Bruce Butler of By Design. He has been wonderful to work with, and we are delighted with our new home. We had never built a house before--nor did we think it was in the cards for us to do so--so we were complete novices when we began. Bruce was very patient with our lack of knowledge and did an excellent job of educating us on the process. Based on information he gathered from us, he presented us with an initial plan that matched our vision! After that, our discussions with him were primarily regarding materials and finishes. Our dealings with Bruce were done from a distance as we lived a half-dozen states away from our building site. Regardless of this, the process was seamless. Bruce also effectively acted on our behalf with the town Planning Board and Code Enforcement Officer. Without making a single change, they signed off on our plans the very night he presented them. He also participated in our meetings with prospective builders and made field trips to see their work. Additionally, he was very proactive on pursuing cost- and energy-saving options. We interviewed other architects before selecting Bruce. After the fact, one of the other firms asked us whom we selected. We told them and they said, "Bruce does great work, I think you'll be in good hands." There’s no question that we were!”
Whitten Architects
Portland, ME Architects and Building Designers
Oct 25, 2012
“We recently had the great pleasure of working with Rob Whitten and Russ Tyson from Whitten Architects, who designed our new seaside family cottage, boathouse and cabin, to replace a quaint, rustic, deteriorating cottage that had been in the family for decades. The old cottage was the original structure in a larger family compound, and served as the focal point for extended family gatherings over the years. It was important to us that a new cottage reflect the character and charm of the original building, while creating a more comfortable, durable, and efficient living space. We also wanted to take advantage of the panoramic view of the Bay, while fitting in unobtrusively with surrounding homes. We could not be happier with the results. Rob, Russ and colleagues have extensive experience designing beautiful camps and cottages in spectacular locations, one reason we were drawn to their firm for our project. In Whitten Architects we found not only this design expertise, but partners with whom it was a pleasure to work through every phase of the project. From the beginning we identified a team approach among architect, client and contractor as very important to us, especially since our property was so far away from Portland. Always thoughtful and responsive, with an appreciation for fine detail, Rob and Russ collaborated sensitively and effectively with us and with our builder. It was gratifying to experience. We are delighted with our beautiful new cottage, which is well suited to our lifestyle, sited perfectly to take advantage of its location, and works in relationship to attractive and functional new outbuildings. Natural lighting and excellent ventilation bring the outdoors in, creating a cozy, yet open feel in a home that is efficient, sustainable, and economical to operate. Rob and Russ also contributed to the landscape design, which enhances and brings a sense of completion to the project. We give Whitten Architects our most enthusiastic endorsement, and are especially grateful to Rob Whitten and Russ Tyson for their outstanding work.”

“I've had the pleasure of working with Kevin on several new construction residential projects. He creates beautiful homes that reflect the client's values and design styles. Each project he has been very receptive to collaboration and making sure the whole design is thought out / realized.”
Delano Architecture
Portland, ME Architects and Building Designers
Mar 19, 2015
“Review for Chris Delano - Art of Space Chris did a wonderful job designing our new lake house so that views of the lake can be seen from our main living areas including the master bedroom. We were pleased with his creative ideas which included the use of upper windows that allow extra light to filter in throughout the day. He not only was the architect but was involved in the management of the project. Chris was excellent to work with and he and the general contractor worked very well together. Chris is a gifted architect and a man of integrity.”

“RDS transformed my small inefficient kitchen into a wonderfully workable space. Carol made what seemed to me an overwhelming project into an exciting one. I couldn't be happier with the outcome.”
Kaplan Thompson Architects
Portland, ME Architects and Building Designers
Apr 2, 2014
“Kaplan Thompson Architects is a top notch firm with energy efficiency as its major focus. They are easy to work with and are full of ideas. We have worked with them on several projects over the years.”
Whipple | Callender Architects
Portland, ME Architects and Building Designers
Mar 18, 2014
“We hired Anne Callender as the architect for our remodel of the Wolf Cove Inn in Poland Maine. We walked through our thoughts on desired changes but also asked Anne to think "outside the box" of what we described. We eventually selected one of her outside the box ideas and couldn't be happier with the result. Anne stuck with us along the way through the design, permitting and demolition process until we had a complete set of drawings that satisfied out needs as well as those of our tradesman and the regulatory authorities. The quality of her work and support were outstanding.”
BRIBURN – Architecture for Life
Portland, ME Architects and Building Designers
Feb 26, 2015
“We took on Briburn for a substantial new residential project on the basis of their website and their stated philosophy, and a 2 hour interview/discussion. As our first and only choice, they clearly stood out among a dozen other architects in the area. We are in the midst of planning now and the process is almost painless. Their guidance is gentle and considerate; their knowledge of "green" building practices is vast. I'm eagerly looking forward to the next steps in this adventure with Briburn.”
Caleb Johnson Studio
Portland, ME Architects and Building Designers
Sep 25, 2013
“We are in the design stage of building our retirement home. Caleb Johnson and his Team took a very restrictive and tight square footage lot and created our dream house. We were so excited! Next came the local Planning Board, state agencies, permits, more permits, more restrictions etc and we were so discouraged. But Caleb, Josh and Michael never stopped and have kept our dream alive with their experience, vision and professional contacts and resources. Demolition is next and we look forward to continuing the journey with Caleb Johnson Architects and Builders.”
Banks Design Associates, LTD & Simply Home
Portland, ME Architects and Building Designers
Oct 3, 2013
“My husband and I remodeled a home in Florida. The project required both the expertise of an architect and an interior designer and Linda Banks and her team fit the bill on both counts. It was a pleasure to work with Linda and James and we were delighted with the finished product. They put their heart and soul into the design and execution of our project and the results were beautiful. Knowing that our family was arriving on Christmas Eve, they had even arranged for festive floral arrangements that made our new house feel instantly like home. I would highly recommend Banks Design Associates.”
