Northampton Museum Service asked us to look at the main gallery at Abington Park Museum, a Grade I listed building. This required a sensitive design approach as the gallery space required new flooring, decoration, M&E, lighting as well as some structural work. The displays tell the stories of Abington: the people, the house and the park. Our interpretation strategy uses displays that link the objects with stories of people and their recorded accounts in film and photography as well as written and oral histories. But in the end it was the quality of sunlight through leaves that set the theme for the whole gallery.
“Working with everyone at Vertigo Creative during 2018 was a joy. They understood the needs of the project and provided wonderful creative solutions to both the 3D and 2D design. I would gladly work with them again and highly recommend them.”
