Founded in 1987, Coastal Architects PA has its roots in architecture, interior design and construction. For the past 30 years we have earned the reputation for providing our clients with creative and inspired architecture.

Perhaps because we hail from such beautiful parts of the world, our focus has always been sensitive to our surroundings, and to the future of their well being. Materials and site are carefully considered in every design and used to their best advantage. One-time materials are prime candidates for selection in our projects, for both environmental and maintenance reasons.

The firm's office is located in Kittery Point, Maine.
