There are over 4,600 islands off the coast of Maine and with this project we added a handful more. Inspired by the local geography, the display tables were conceived as floating “islands” with their very own unique topographies.
This is the sister showroom to the SeaWeed flagship location located in a strip mall. We designed the space as a retreat from the familiar and mall exterior by incorporating handmade finishes and spacious interiors.
What building methods were used?
Custom millwork, wood end block, Zellige Tiles, polished concrete floors, and plentiful plants.
Who are the clients and what's interesting about them?
Seaweed, as one of Maines first recreational cannabis stores, aimes to be an inclusive source. In addtion to the two retail stores, they have an extraction lab and cultivation facility.
How is the project unique?
As one of the first legal dispensaries in Portland, Maine, we sought to create an accessible and welcoming environment for a discerning clientele. Using iconic and instantly recognizable elements from residential design —like the kitchen island, built-in hutch, Parsons table and soft furnishings—we demystify the experience of purchasing cannabis and create a place where guests can appreciate the finer qualities of the lovingly-cultivated product on view.
