44 North Architects is a full service design firm founded by Tor Glendinning, Principal Architect, in 2003. Since then we have completed more than 150 residential and commercial projects of all shapes, styles, sizes and scales. With each project we strive to achieve creative solutions served by decades of collective experience. Our commitment is to work with each client with the same attention and provide our highest level of design service. We help produce unique structures and spaces that are appropriate to each of our client’s needs, taste and budget; this is accomplished through an attentive collaborative process. 44 North Architects will help you explore innovative design options and that will yield distinctive spaces that enrich your life and work.


Our success has all to do with providing a high grade service. At the end of the day it’s about serving the clients we work with. The word “with” is emphasized because a project of any merit, is about the team. Teamwork is key. Consider that the owner, the builder and the architect are pillars of a platform. Each one serves a unique role, and the quality of these pillars has everything to do with the success of a project. The means to the end travels a road of quality in process; the beautiful and efficient structure you so desire will inevitably be the result of this. This is what we orchestrate and something we do very well.


What’s the trick? Organization! This is supported by utilization of the digital systems including computer-aided design and digital communication connectivity. Here in mid-Coast Maine a large firm of many is unsustainable. To remain relevant to our market, the office, located at 3 Snead Spur in Newcastle, is headquartered by Tor and an associate, day to day. Depending on the size and scope of a project an active design team might be one or as many as 20 professionals engaged. This is how we are able to execute projects in cost range of twenty thousand dollars to ten million dollars. 44North works with some of the best, most reputable consultant firms in the state.
