Based in Portland Maine, Whipple | Callender Architects serves clientele throughout New England. Our team is comprised of four Maine Licensed Architects, one of whom also holds a license in New Hampshire and one is licensed in Connecticut. We are LEED Accredited Professionals with various certified advanced specialties. Established by the U.S. Green Building Council, LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) is a green building certification program that recognizes building strategies and practices that save energy, conserve resources, reduce pollution, and contribute to healthy environments. Our commitment to energy conservation took root in the late 70’s and has been a cornerstone of our work ever since.
John Whipple and Anne Callender established Whipple | Callender Architects in 1991. For 16 years before that, John worked as a sole proprietor. Anne’s husband, architect Joseph Delaney, joined the firm a few years after Anne. In early 2016, a fourth architect, Cynthia Loebenstein, began working with us. Catherine Callender and Nick Canedy came on board in 2015 as designer/drafters. Support staff and a four legged friend, Val, help the day-to-day office functions run more smoothly.
Our work has been roughly equal parts residential and commercial, varied in size and type. Houses and additions are a specialty, as well as medical offices and office planning. Projects vary in size from a 56-bed prep school dormitory to a single light fixture. Most of our work is located in southern Maine, along the coast, and in the Augusta/Waterville areas, but we happily venture beyond the borders of Maine.
