All in Interpretation Panels
We were commissioned to design and fabricate the Gateway signs for the Fife Pilgrim Way. Our concept was to incorporate traditional elements such as the classic arch of a field gate with the stained glass of a church window. The whole interpretive structure was designed for recyclability and every piece was carefully crafted by specialist carpenters and steel workers.

This is the end of a two year process of design and various stages of interpretation ideas. The brief originally came to us with the desire to create a series of hubs using cut through corten steel. However, we felt that this treatment was a little unsympathetic to the project aims so we created a completely new design. The hubs came from the notion of a pit wheel within which we introduced the stories of the landscape setting for each hub. Thus the story is in steel. The interpretation panel inserted into the hub puts flesh on the bones of these stories. The spinning zinc etched discs and coloured resin introduce a fun element allowing for the interpretation to appeal to a wide ranging audience including children.

The latest interpretation at Raystede Centre for Animal Welfare has built on the existing interpretation we installed last year and includes audio, visual, smell and touch interpretation.
