We came to Meredith with a concept for our new home. She listened carefully while making helpful suggestions and was able to mold our concept into a workable plan that fulfilled our vision, met our budgetary requirements, and was energy efficient. Meredith designed our home with beauty, character, and a high degree of functionality.
Meredith was always timely, diligent, and very attentive to the project. We placed our confidence in her and it paid off. We have been in our home for a year and we love it.

“I am finally starting to feel settled and DELIGHTED with the way the renovations turned out! I was basically 'deer in the headlights' throughout. Meredith figured out what I would love and designed it.”
My husband and I can highly recommend Meredith Randolph. She designed a home for us on Mount Desert Island that we truly loved. Most importantly, she’s a delight to work with, is a superb listener, and is extremely creative. We would hire her again without a second thought.

Meredith Randolph is a building designer who listens. She is not about building her monument, rather shaping your vision. She works seamlessly with contractors, the best of whom she knows. She lends experience to get the form right, the function effective, and thoughtful attention to sustaining the earth in all elements of water, earth, fire and air. Meredith crafts lovely spaces. A joy to be around.

Collaborating with Meredith on the design of our house was a wonderful process from start to finish. We purchased a gutted summer cottage and needed to transform it into a permanent residence for our family. We had very specific needs, both practical and aesthetic, and Meredith was able to understand and integrate them into a beautiful design that is a joy to live in.
-Sam and Kathryn Wyatt
A graduate of Cornell University's College of Architecture Art and Planning and holding a graduate degree from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts. Meredith has worked in Architecture firms and has been designing buildings since 2000. As technology is ever changing Meredith is always researching new ideas, taking courses and going to conferences.
An invaluable learning experience for Meredith was designing and building her own house in 2005. Meredith chose to build a straw bale house for the high level of energy performance, unmatched sustainability and the unique feel of space created with natural materials. The house is easy to heat, stays cool in the summer, while being quiet and peaceful. The hands on experience in building has been invaluable to her perspective on design.
Meredith seeks community involvement, including 7 years on the board of the Island Housing Trust, an organization that encourages viable, year-round island communities by facilitating reasonably priced housing opportunities for the workforce on Mount Desert Island. 2 of those years she served as the Board President. Presently she serves on the Town of Mount Desert Planning Board.
