The Brick and The Machine Complex Unveiled
January 20, 2022
Work was recently completed on The Brick and The Machine, a new office complex across the street from the Kirk Douglas Theatre in Culver City.
Located on the northeast corner of Washington Boulevard and Delmas Terrace, the mixed-use project replaced the former Bank of the West site with a three- and four-story building featuring 90,000 square feet of space and a landscaped roof terrace.
Abramson Architects designed The Brick and The Machine, which also includes parking for 250 vehicles sits in a subterranean garage.
"The Brick features a dynamic shift between large, building-scale window openings and a finely textured, human-scale materiality," according the Abramson Architects website. "The exterior façade is a contemporary interpretation of the historic brick landmarks in the area. The Machine features a series of movable exterior screens that offer glare and temperature control."
Conceived more than four years ago, The Brick and The Machine includes many features which have become must haves in the pandemic era, says Timan Khoubian, managing director with DLJ Real Estate Capital Partners, which built the project in partnership with Prudential Global Investment Management.
"The goal was to create a jewel box building with ample indoor-outdoor space, which today is all the more important given tenants’ focus on health and wellness," said Khoubian
