Design & Art Inspiration

NEMA Boston features custom-curated artworks and design elements to reflect Boston’s and the Seaport's past and present.

The Boston luxury apartment building’s modern façade is designed with ledger stone, bronze paneling, and glass.

NEMA Boston's modern façade—designed with ledger stone, bronze paneling, and glass—creates a neighborhood beacon in the historic and ever-evolving Seaport district. The façade's distinctive slant, inspired by the bow of a ship, gently nods to the district’s nautical history.


In sync with the Seaport's new status as Boston's innovation hub, a 70-foot LED art wall creates a vivid backdrop to NEMA's arrival experience, with revolving nature scenes from Boston’s environs.

The luxury apartment building’s lobby tells the story of the Seaport’s past and present.

The Lobby features an art dedication to The Channel, the legendary Fort Point club that drew the most popular local and national bands of the 1980s. An art wall features custom records that name the most important acts who played at The Channel, highlighting this dynamic decade in Boston’s music scene. Eventually, The Channel turned into a dance club where popular Boston DJs spun records, and, of course, the NEMA Lobby features a DJ turntable driving the music system.

Nema Boston V Steel Structure Art

A massive steel beam "V," which, along with a curved steel I-beam and rough-hewn granite sculpture by Randy Doering, pay homage to Boston’s role in laying the groundwork for industrializing the Northeast. Artist Tom Burr’s "November" wool work alludes to the Seaport’s status as a thriving textile shipping hub of the early 20th century.
