Lincoln Public Schools District Office

Sinclair Hille Architects designed the $15m Lincoln Public Schools (LPS) District Office Building located on the northwest corner of 59th and ‘O’ streets in Lincoln, Nebraska.

The three-story office building is part of a public-private partnership between LPS and Continuum Partners of Denver, Colorado formed to redevelop a 7-acre site that combines office, commercial and street-level retail space.

The exterior skin of the new 100,000 s.f. office building consists of precast concrete, field-laid brick masonry and stone, architectural metal panels and aluminum glazing systems. Warm, earth tones were selected for the exterior finishes and extend to the streetscape paving and site walls. Innovative day lighting techniques were used to create ample daylight throughout the office space and reduce energy loads from artificial lighting. 


I enjoyed working with SHA on the Canopy Street Project.  It was a very complex project which required both large scale design thought as well as a focus on small details. Their professionalism impressed me as well as all of the other clients in the project from restaurants, to hotel operations through condo buyers, SHA continued to move the project forward and solve problems with all in mind.  As a licensed architect myself I really appreciated their willingness to partner with me and listen to my design ideas while improving the direction time and time again. Quite simply, Canopy Street would not have been nearly as successful without SHA’s talented staff.
