On August 25, 2014, the Arnold team was excited to move into its new home at 10 Summer Street in Downtown Crossing, a space more familiarly known as “the Filene’s building.” Designed by renowned architect Daniel Burnham, Filene’s opened its flagship store in 1912 and operated for nearly 100 years. Today, the building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and continues to be a prominent Boston icon.
From our earliest discussions at Arnold, we decided that we wanted to find a space that had a story to tell, that had character and authenticity. We feel so fortunate to be part of the reimagining of this incredible place and to celebrate the bringing together of the old and the new.
Visitors will see commemorative elements woven throughout the building design, from our conference rooms, which are each named after a different department from the old Filene’s building, to the exposed steel columns with all of the original detailing, to even the original wooden handrails and decorative metal grates that were salvaged before construction and reused.
With the completely open floor plan (you won’t find an office here!) creative, digital, and media teams happily work side-by-side, sharing workspaces and our fantastic new state of the art production facilities.
