The following designs were created for York Castle Museum. The scheme builds upon the Museum's existing interpretive approach with material collections and social history interpretation combined. The project budget was £90k.
The following design and build was carried out by Qualia and XMC Limited for
Whitby Literary and Philosophical Society. On a very limited budget of less than £20k, Qualia and XMC were able to refurbish two Victorian cases and reinterpret a key part of Whitby Museum's Jurassic collection. The case refurbishment involved having collection objects displayed on graphic timelines within the cases and a new low-voltage lighting system.
Queen Mary's Room at Edinburgh Castle is where she gave birth to her son James, the first King of England, Scotland and Ireland in 1566 . The portraits in the preceding room tell the story of Mary’s royal line and its connections to Edinburgh Castle. Qualia worked closely with Historic Environment Scotland on the meticulous positioning and layouts of the royal portraits from its collection.
This was very much a collaborative process, with the relative positions of text, lighting and portraits being of critical importance. Historic Environment Scotland curated the content of the exhibition and KSLD provided the lighting design.
