Clear Connections
A Sydney bank uses architecture and wayfinding to support a radical new work model.
Transparency is a big buzzword these days. Politicians and corporations, psychologists and members of the media all strive for it or, at the very least, toss around the word as some sort of ideal practice. But what does it really mean? And more importantly, what does it look like? Ironically, an example may be found in the type of place that prompted the large-scale application of this word in the first place: a financial institution.

This artistic work that Jane Perkins offers us just shows the importance and beauty of small things, which individually have no special meaning but together create memorable images

Lynnette Kang's insight:

Interesting for both library space design and signage, and how the signage and wayfinding system are integrated perfectly

Zoning by font - a different font for each of the library's 10 zones, chosen/designed to match its use

("Typographical environments")

Use of quotations from the books taken from each zone

Coloured strips on the words of the navigation system draws attention, awa from the accompanying text and quotes

Tom Mirams, JamFactory Furniture for Mount Gambier Library

Tom Mirams, JamFactory Furniture for Mount Gambier Library | Architecture and Space | Scoop.it
The Mount Gambier Library furniture fit-out by the Jamfactory furniture workshop demonstrates a highly successful collaborative approach to integrating architecture and crafted interiors. The collaboration between Brown Falconer architects and the furniture workshop was led by Tom Mirams. Central to the design vision was that the personality of the building and interiors reflect the unique nature of the region around Mount Gambier, reinforcing the notion of community ownership. Craft Australia interviewed Mirams about how the Jamfactory furniture workshop conceptualised, developed and managed this project.
