Murdock Solon Architects is proud to announce the opening of its second office in Portland, Maine, located at 80 Exchange Street in Portland’s historic downtown waterfront. Drawn by the up-and-coming design scene, as well as the surging revitalization of the area’s urban core, MSA will offer top-notch residential, commercial, and institutional architecture and interior design services across New England. We continue to serve the New York City area from our original office in Manhattan.
First on the books for our Maine office, MSA has designed a Squash Barn for a private club house located on Mount Desert Island. On approach, the structure gradually appears in the thick woods as if it is to be found, blending into the colors of the earth and surrounding foliage.
Heavy timber scissor trusses and exposed knotted pine of the roof deck compose the interior spaces of the barn while defining the squash court as the center focal point, which comprises the exercise space and social area.
