Arrowstreet was commissioned to design the renovation of warehouse space for Timberland Footwear design group’s corporate offices. An outdoor, woodsy environment contrasts with the high-tech and media-focused designer workstations. The “incubator” like atmosphere fosters a sense of creative and entrepreneurial spirit through its many shared spaces from open field meeting areas to interactive coffee bars, barn wood conference rooms, and garage offices. The high ceiling allows soft sock air handling ducts, acoustic clouds, and varied lighting schemes. The space includes a seasonally changeable product showroom and a fully “wired” 620-seat assembly room that is divisible into smaller meeting rooms.
Arrowstreet listened to our requirements, explained their ideas, and then built a space entirely suited to our purpose that inspires our footwear designers’ imaginations.
