BUOY SHACK lobsters + drinks

Kittery, Maine

Riverfront Restaurant Experience Design

The Buoy Shack, an open-air riverside restaurant located on Kittery’s Badgers Island, opened in the spring of 2022 and quickly became an iconic seacoast dining destination. The design team collaborated closely with property and business owners to create a comprehensive brand and building design - melding modern and traditional Maine style that plays off off the surrounding working waterfront vernacular.

Design features include:

  • Maximized indoor - outdoor space within a small footprint
  • Shed roof structure reminiscent of local fishing shacks
  • Contemporary use of materials
  • Brand design that plays off of the property owners family buoy colors
