Sealander Architects is an eastern Maine architecture firm that believes well-designed environments free people to do their best work.

We are redefining the practice of architecture to solve the facility needs of people in the education, public and institutional sectors.  It is about listening to clients, helping them visualize design ideas, and creating supportive and enabling spaces. The best buildings are designed by those with technical expertise, sympathy for and understanding of an owner’s needs, and sensitivity to the public and natural worlds.

Every organization is made of people who are influenced by their environment. We help organizations find a better place.
