The Trust wanted the displays to appeal to families and children and to also encourage adults from local communities to share their thoughts and memories. The interactive displays initiate exploration through play and the opening of doors and drawers that have many hidden treasures inside. These include Anglo Saxon bangles, ancient pottery sherds, Georgian grocers' tokens, wax seals and antique theatre programmes.
The choice of materials and colours worked really well with the Royal Greenwich Heritage Trusts new graphic identities. Interior finishes were left natural and coated with a conservation-grade clear finish to protect the objects and materials on display.
The displays were designed, built and delivered in ten weeks and have been very well received by the Royal Greenwich Heritage Trust client team. "They look great, the team are really pleased with them both, thanks so much for the hard work you've put in to this..."
The total budget allowance was £20,000 + VAT for design, build and ongoing servicing and maintenance.
