NMS @ Lincoln
Santa Monica, CA
||44,000 SF, 97 Units
NMS @ Lincoln is a 97-unit, mixed-use building occupying a site at a major intersection, Lincoln and Broadway, in Santa Monica. By using formal and crisp language as a response to its Lincoln Boulevard location, the project creates a contrast with the casual forms, colors and historic Quonset hut of its adjacent sister building, LuXe @ Broadway.
At the prominent corner, the project’s clear geometric forms are broken by an open plaza with dynamic circulation, outdoor seating, accent lighting, and a large sycamore tree. This plaza has become a lively pedestrian-oriented public space in downtown Santa Monica.
