Royal Institute of British Architects and University of London to publish Sir Banister Fletcher’s Global History of Architecture, 21st Edition

Chloe / Architectural, Japan / / 0 Comments

I was recently contacted by the Royal Institute of British Architects. They are partnering with the University of London to produce the 21st edition of “Sir Banister Fletcher’s Global History of Architecture”. As described in RIBA’s press release, “Sir Banister Fletcher’s A History of Architecture is the world’s acknowledged classic work of architectural history reference. Since the first edition was published in 1896, it has been declared the ‘Book of the Century’ by the American Institute of Architects and has become essential reading for generations of architects and students. This tradition continues today, with the 21st Edition set to provide the most comprehensive global history of architecture available in any form.”


I am pleased and excited to announce that one of my photographs of Bruno Taut’s Kyu Hyuga Villa has been selected for the 21st edition published by Bloomsbury Publishing. Also included will be Italian architect Marco Capitanio’s section drawing of the villa shown below. For details on the 21st edition, view RIBA’s press release here. Publication is set for 2018.


Look for the exhibition and symposium with Marco Capitanio, “West of Japan, East of Europe” to open in Tokyo, Japan in April, Suzhou, China, and Milan, Italy in the fall of 2017.

Dodge Mountain Shoot

Chloe / Architectural / / 0 Comments

Donald Pendleton at Legacy Properties in Camden, Maine contacted me to photograph a listing in Rockland recently. A gorgeous home on Dodge Mountain overlooking Penobscot Bay. Originally known as the Bird Cottage, this magnificent home has been lovingly restored and renovated with beautiful woodwork throughout. A great space for any occasion from dinner parties to champagne brunches.

Back to Islesboro

djclough / Architectural / / 0 Comments

It is always a pleasure to photograph on Islesboro, and especially in Dark Harbor – an area of the island rich in history; here is one more project from 2015 that is now public. This cottage was designed by Frederick Savage, and originally built as a residence for a Philadelphia banker, George Philler, in 1896.


With nine bedrooms, ten bathrooms, a beautiful double staircase, and an oval dining room, the home boasts many elegant features. It was not always so. The former  Dark Harbor House inn had run into disrepair and was in serious need of attention and close to demolition. Out of square, out of plumb, with dipping floorboards,  the current owners took the restoration project on and raised the structure to put int a new foundation. With topnotch quality craftsmanship throughout, this home has been painstakingly restored to its former beauty, and no detail was left undone.


Look for more on this home in the Tilbury House Publishers book project I am photographing for – a how-to book by Scott T. Hanson on rehabilitating historic homes to function in the 21st century while retaining their historic character. If interested in the historic homes of Dark Harbor, I can highly recommend Earle Shettleworth’s book, The Summer Cottages of Islesboro, Maine available at the Maine Historical Society.


The home is now for sale and listed with Landvest, contact Terry or Joseph Sortwell for details. Interesting background information on this home and its miraculous renovation on several Landvest’s blog posts here, here and here

djclough / Architectural / / 0 Comments

Rosie Curtis, originally from the UK, has been designing spaces in Maine for nearly twenty years. With many standout projects to her credit, she has broken out on her own. Needing images that matched her vision for her upcoming website, she contacted Dave Clough Photography to photograph a recently completed renovation in Northport, Maine. In many ways, a traditional style Maine camp, Rosie designed a contemporary feel to the home and the two styles reside in harmony. A lovely property enhanced by her vision and design. Stay tuned for more on Rosie Curtis’s work!

Gagne & Son Concrete

Summer 2016 found me photographing for Gagne & Son Concrete around and across the state of Maine.


Documenting their pavers in use for driveways, patios and pool surrounds, the extended project was a wonderful opportunity to see Maine craftsmanship at work in landscape design. From modest to magnificent properties – all were enhanced with these Gagne & Son Concrete pavers.

CMCA – Center for Maine Contemporary Art

djclough / Architectural, Commercial / / 0 Comments

The Center for Maine Contemporary Art has officially moved to Rockland, and in a big, impressive, and beautiful way. Their new home was designed by Toshiko Mori and I was commissioned by CMCA to photograph the exterior and its instantly-iconic sawtooth roof. Several variations on a singular theme – many thanks to those who guided, assisted and helped out. Isn’t that Porsche just wonderful!

CMCA NOW – indeed!
