A collection of historical buildings including the area’s first State school, Post offices, cottages, carriage, orchard and blacksmith sheds, and a ‘G’ Class locomotive and original railway station form the KALAMUNDA HISTORY VILLAGE.
Unifying and updating the signage of this hilltop museum with a family-friendly design, engages both adults and children with an informative solution that is economical, sits harmoniously within its unique bushland setting and is sympathetic to the original structures. (Signs are easy to update and do not damage the original structures).
The signage is categorised into three distinct information areas and is coded by colour and texture to unify the information. Ochre/tan represents the first people, vibrant green for the built structures and an earthy brown for the railway components of the site.
The museum extended the signage to include four individual LCD screens featuring a selection of historical imagery loaded via a USB to allow for easy updates and rotation of context.
