Project Designer. Concept, script, art direction and production design
The permanent exhibition was part of a re-development of an historic property. The design for the multi-layered re-use and the new facilities were expertly and sensitively undertaken by the Shrewsbury based firm of Architects, Arrol and Snell. The Centre combined a museum, conference facilities, popular café and shop in a converted historic house in a parkland setting on the edge of the town. The ‘experiential ‘ multi-media exhibit took visitors on a ‘journey’ into pre-Roman Celtic history and Culture in Northern Europe, before delivering them back to the present day reality of a small town in North Wales.
