The client required a makeover for The Sir Thomas Brisbane Planetarium. The displays and internal fitout were virtually unchanged since it opened in 1978. Focus Productions were contracted to: develop a creative interpretive site-wide master plan; create workshop drawings; and fabricate, install and commission new displays, and update existing displays.
CREATIVITY & QUALITY OF DESIGN
Focus worked creatively with the available materials to refresh as much of the space as we could within the available budget. Design features included: refurbished showcases, programmable LED lighting, bold floor to ceiling graphics, as well as integrating storytelling elements such as ‘alien mascots’ for the Learning is Fun audience. Giving the Planetarium a contemporary ambiance has increased its appeal to school groups and children.
