Downtown Crossing gets ready to welcome the new occupants of the Filene’s building: ad agency Havas.

Betaboston posted a first-look photo gallery, along with some details on the building’s design selections and interior motif:

“The four floors are connected by wide staircases, and Havas calls the space a “village,” since it will house employees of Arnold, Havas Public Relations, Havas Media, which handles online and offline media buying for clients, and several other teams. About 600 Havas employees move in on Monday. No one has private offices, and the 64 conference rooms are all named after departments of the old Filene’s store.”
