The National Archive, Kew 2009
Set in The National Archives at Kew this new interactive museum showcases treasures from the archives. At the centre of the museum design sits ‘The Domesday Book’, the iconic and oldest public record from the days of William the Conqueror.
We worked closely with The National Archives education department and lead architects Wilkinson Eyre to develop the look and feel of the museum design which radiates out around the Domesday centrepiece.
The U-Boat Story Liverpool
U-534 is one of only four remaining World War II U-Boats in existence. It forms the centrepiece of a new £4.5m visitor centre design at Liverpool Docks, which opened in February 2009. We worked closely with designers Real Studios to create maximum impact for text and visuals on display panels in its purpose built visitor centre designed in February 2009
- Within any museum design, communications is key to deliver a coherent museum interpretation. Different types of information levels need to be addressed as does the needs of different audiences and displays. A well thought-out visual hierarchy creates accessibility and impact to all the museum exhibits and total museum design.
