Beneath this gorgeously designed Memorial in commemoration of the soldiers of WW1, is an exhibition from the Memorial Collection. An interpretive overlay, was required, to highlight some of the very special artefacts and stories contained in that collection.

It was a great pleasure to work in one of our favourite Sydney sites, designed by architect, Bruce Dellit, and the highly underrated sculptor, Raynor Hoff. Our objective was to enhance the existing exhibition and venue and to make the overlay completely seemless, as if it had always been apart of the exhibition and architecture.

This was achieved by focussing on the architecture and using wood for the interpretation and large reproductions of the Memorial’s
