Conception to Construction


Drawings by Andy Hyland, Port City Architecture

Honoring the roots of architecture, Andy Hyland of Port City Architecture still creates gorgeously detailed hand-drawn home renderings. Once Hyland’s meticulous illustrations are complete, he scans them onto the computer, transforming his traditional drawings into digital files, giving them cutting-edge versatility.


By designing the seaside cottage as a simple square, Port City Architecture kept the project within a moderate budget. The symmetrical design also serves to highlight the wraparound porch and “Lookout Cupola,” which commands magnificent views of nearby Acadia National Park and Cadillac Mountain.
