For more than 75 years LouisBoston has been the premiere men’s–and latterly women’s—wear emporium in Beantown. In 1997, Tim Button and Stedila Design renovated Louis’s multilevel store in the historic 1863 New England Museum of National History building in Boston’s Back Bay. Last year Tim and his firm designed a large new industrial-style store for Louis when it moved to Boston’s waterfront at Fan Pier. As Tim says, “It’s a far distance both physically and aesthetically from its Back Bay home, but we’re proud of our client who had the vision that allowed us to create this space, including Sam’s restaurant and Salon Mario Russo.” Earlier this year, Luxury Society, an online business network for the global luxury industry, named the new LouisBoston one of the “10 Must Know Concept Stores in the Americas.“ Here are some shots of the dynamic, light-filled new space.
