66 King Street : Interpretive panels & Historical Plaque

Trico Constructions required the services of a graphic design firm that could design, artwork and manage the implementation of two interpretive design panels for 66 Kent Street. The client has provided a guide for the implementation of the signs. Rara Designs was to design the panels, layout, edit text, source images and manage construction.

Two high quality internal interpretive panels were to effectively communicate both the history and significance of the ACA Building.

These panels complemented the size of the existing directory boards either side of the doorway, leading to the former Assurance Chamber on the right hand side in the foyer, They were mounted with aluminium and glass and visible to users of the building. The brief stated that the design include copies of original floor plans and elevations by Hennessy, Hennessy & Co. and historical images from the 1936 Building magazine which were sourced and bought via the NSW State Library.

A historical plaque was also to be designed and implemented on the exterior of the building.

We worked closely with Trico Constructions and Signarama Bankstown to create a piece of history.

“Rara Designs provided professional advice and expertise to create the interpretive panels and historical plaque. A great pleasure to work with. They exceeded far beyond our expectations.”
