ARCHITECTS

Attardo Pondelis Architecture, 81 Bridge Street, Yarmouth 04096
(207) 846-2042, attardopondelis.com

Our residential clients have an obvious emotional investment in their home and, as such, we see them as collaborators. Architects have to synthesize into a harmonious whole a myriad of factors including the site, the climate, the context and the budget. These factors are further filtered through a program of needs and wants presented to us by our clients. As architects, we bring experience, creativity and specific problem-solving skills to the process and just as importantly, a capacity for listening. (Photos: Darren Setlow)
