Based on Hocking Heritage Studio’s interpretation strategy for Heirloom apartments in Fremantle, Creative Spaces was given the task of weaving the building’s history into its interior through the use of large scale interpretive panels and murals.
We designed a set of interpretive panels for the foyer of the apartments. These give an insight into the process of wool production, and the changes within the wool industry over the twentieth century. Expanding on this theme, Creative Spaces also designed three large-scale interpretive murals to cover each of the lift shafts within the newly adapted building. The content of these graphics reflect the practices that took place within the building, specific to the wool industry and the evolution of its technologies over time.
This project was completed in October 2016 on Whadjuk Noongar Boodja. Photos courtesy of Greg Hocking.
