Bark were asked to design an inspiring, informative and welcoming space that displayed a series of themed storyboards, showcasing the Noosa Civic Refresh Development Application in a series of four themes over a 12 week period. The space we created reflects elements of the varied themes proposed in the Noosa Civic Refresh design, including the use of recycled timber, plywood and vegetation.
The arbour was constructed with a curved structural steel beam, recycled timber arbours and slotted plywood discs. Located in the food court area of the centre, the sweeping curve of the arbour draws people into its ‘pop up’ structure, focusing their attention toward the bushland outside, which is a theme that is reflected in the Development Application.
The changing kinetic banner acts as a billboard attracting passers-by to view the display, whilst six pivoting plywood panels house the ‘hero image’ of the theme, changing every three weeks as a new theme is installed. The storyboards on the inner faces of each panel give a detailed representation of the schemes, revealing more information and imagery. Plywood box frames with potted plants are secured inside and can be changed in line with each new theme, making this an incredibly flexible display solution. There are also smaller plywood box frames with pivoting exhibition panels and movable lights hung from cable above.
