Rosie Curtis is a Maine Licensed Architect, who has been designing delightful spaces in Midcoast Maine for the last twenty years. Sustainability, structure, project budget and the desires of the client interact to produce unique buildings and rooms, tailored to fit specific situations. Much of her work is residential, collaboratively designing welcoming spaces for families and individuals. She designs with her clients as well for them. She loves the process of working with people, from reorganizing their spaces so their lives work better, to helping them create the home of their dreams.
She is equally at home in the commercial sphere, having worked on cost effective permitting and design for restaurants, businesses, commercial real estate and schools. Rooted in place, the building and cultural traditions of Maine and its landscape and development patterns always inform the work. Hands on experience as a contractor as well as building her own home and office means her designs can be easily built, with details that work well and look good. Five years of teaching architecture in the University of Maine system bring an intellectual rigor and depth of understanding to the design process. A background of community work with groups as well as research and development of tiny house / disaster relief prototypes speaks to a strong desire to support all members of our society.
