Conflicts 1945 to Today
Australian War Memorial
This project was designed by Cunningham Martyn Design in Melbourne, with whom we developed a very close relationship in order to handle what became our most challenging job at this site. Everything beneath the black ceiling that you see in these spaces was made and painted in our Hume workshop, unless it is an actual ‘museum object’, the set dressing that gives the element of reality, the graphics themselves or a piece of AV equipment. A great variety of painted, anodised, specially treated and other finishes are displayed, a particularly interesting example being the conical, rusted structure that houses the Kapyong diorama and the ‘Trench Experience’ in the Korean section.
Designcraft also fabricated and installed all of the showcases for the project, from the smallest custom medal showcases to the largest proprietary museum (NVL) system, numbering some 75 cases in total.
