Archetype has made a major impact on the built environment of Portland, Maine. Over the past 25 years, the firm has designed and overseen the construction of a most impressive portfolio of some of Portland’s best-known and most visible residential, commercial, institutional and mixed-use developments and historic restorations.
A few of their architectural contributions to Southern Maine:
Because of the Firm’s outstanding track record of accomplishments – aesthetic, functional and pedestrian-friendly and environmentally smart, Archetype was selected to design the historic restoration of the Mellen E. Bolster House (c. 1881) as it becomes The Francis Hotel, and the adjacent Bramhall Row Townhouses. Together, these complimentary architectural assets are creating exciting, new and revitalized landmarks on upper Congress Street, just west of Longfellow Square, connecting Portland’s West End and the historic Bramhall Hill section with the Parkside neighborhood, which stretches to Portland’s green centerpiece, Deering Oaks Park.
