Maryborough, one of the oldest cities in Queensland, is a significant and active centre for arts and culture. Our brief was to transform 331 Kent Street, a heritage-listed building and the birthplace of Mary Poppin's author PL Travers, into the Story Bank.

The aim was to have visitors take away a range of new perspectives, emotions and memories from their experience with a destination, establishing a personal connection with the city and its stories.

OUR CONTRIBUTIONS

Concept Development

We worked collaboratively with the Fraser Coast team to develop the exciting, visually dynamic and interactive concepts for this center.

Interpretation

With a life as varied and interesting as PL Travers, interpretive content is a key element of the Story Bank. Providing visitors with in-depth history and expanded commentary, we delivered a deep and engaging experience.

Design

We designed many of the exhibits, including lighting, audio and digital elements. A variety of styles were used, from literary black and white to organic and colourful.

Digital

We designed and built several installations for this project including touch-enabled digital kiosks, audio-visual elements, a custom Content Management System (CMS), a theatre, a projected light show, an interactive shadow-play room all powered by a media server we setup and installed.

Manufacture

Armsign manufactured all of the exhibitions, signage, installations and supporting elements using a wide variety of tactile materials including fabric, clear acrylic, poster board and timber.

Installation

Our installation team working with local tradesmen, installed the interior and exterior elements including painting, flooring and electrical over a two week period.
