His promotion became effective Jan. 1.

“I'm looking forward to continuing my journey with the rest of the studio members at Simons Architects and am honored to be working with such a kind, hardworking and forward-thinking team,” he said.

He earned a bachelor of architecture degree from the Cooper Union in New York, graduating in 2015.

Maiello has worked on the renovation and expansion of a few Maine libraries, including Rice Public Library in Kittery and Jesup Memorial Library in Bar Harbor, which is under construction.

Other projects include the renovation of the main gallery at the Ogunquit Museum of Art, the design for a new Maine Public headquarters, and a bird-safe home in Durham. 

He is working with the nonprofit Milestone Recovery on renovating a new facility for its detox program in Portland. 

Maiello is a licensed architect in Maine, a member of the American Institute of Architects, and is pursuing Passive House Consultant Certification.
