Seaweed Co. had the vision to create an architecturally significant building and lead the way in Maine’s adult-use marijuana retail scene. The primary goal was to create a sophisticated but approachable feel and broad appeal from the first-time buyer to the avid consumer. A pride in Maine-made craftsmanship was also integral in reflecting the product line of the brand.
Respect for the landscape.
The front of the building is austere in appearance from the roadside. In contrast, the rear faces wetlands and opens up with floor-to-ceiling windows that capture spectacular views and plenty of light. A large deck allows for outdoor space as part of Seaweed’s commitment to promoting marijuana wellness education. The site was carefully designed to respect the landscape, including selecting natural plants and permeable pavers with a filtration system to clean rainwater before it returns to the wetlands.
