Interior of BFM Offices

Boston, MA – Dyer Brown, an architecture and interiors firm, recently completed the design of a new 13,000sf workplace for Boston Financial Management (BFM), a group that handles large investment portfolios for families and organizations.

Moving to a new office for the first time in over 15 years, the company tasked the Dyer Brown team with creating a more modern, efficient workplace, but with elements that evoke a sense of tradition, reliability, and trust.

Led by Director of Workplace Ashley Dunn, AIA, the Dyer Brown team engaged with BFM’s leadership and staff to determine an optimized “transitional” approach. Concerned about their new space appearing out of step with their long-standing brand, the BFM team opted to retain private offices and warm wood finishes, paired with more contemporary design and programming at areas less visible to visiting clients.

The new space is brighter and more open than BFM’s previous workspace. A folding glass wall at the boardroom opens to create a large meeting and event space in the heart of the office.  The adjacent waiting area combines modern finishes with the warmth of wood, and features a large-scale “ship in a bottle” display, reflecting the investment group’s logo and reinforcing the sense of tradition.
Respecting BFM’s commitment to fiduciary responsibility, Dyer Brown’s efficient design scheme reused and repurposed many existing walls and other elements in the space.
The staff pantry area, by contrast, is the most modern part of the new workplace, featuring lighter wood-look flooring, a writable wall, an open ceiling punctuated by unique pendant fixtures, and views of the water.
