Creation of an interpretation gallery housing and displaying valuable archives
To work closely with the exhibition designers ABG Design to create a multi-functioning space for Exeter Cathedral. The major feature of ABG Design’s solution was the ability to transform the space from a full interpretative exhibition to a ‘closed static’ mode within minutes, allowing the space to be adapted as necessary.
A series of bespoke, solid oak, full height doors that when closed presented a flush panelling exterior. The doors enclosed display cases, interpretation panels and oak veneered units. Part of the overall design by ABG included a stained glass effect light box that featured at the end of the gallery, which included in-built AV and stand-alone display unit. Other features include overhead LED lighting, high level stainless steel timelines with graphics applied direct to the wall and an entrance monolith sign.
A creative, high quality installation, built from the very best materials, which responded to the multipurpose challenge of the project. When closed the installation provides a very grand entrance to the library and archive, when open it provides an engaging, high spec exhibition space.
