State House Commons

Augusta, Maine

TJD&A transformed an under-utilized lawn area between the State House and the State Museum into an urban plaza featuring a rich palette of plantings, a sculptural water feature, shade trees, and textured paving. The space was planned as a focal point for official ceremonies, a sunny place for lunchtime activities, and a gathering point for school groups.

The State House Common stands as a testament to Maine craftsmanship and work ethic. I am impressed with the work that you and your design team undertook, as well as your commitment to quality and timeliness in completing the project.” - Governor John E. Baldacci
