Sparking an Interest
INTREC were engaged by the Queensland Museum to deliver the SparkLab fitout at the Sciencentre in Southbank, Brisbane. The first major renovation since it’s opening in 2004, the project was made up of over 40 interactive exhibitions. These exhibits show how science contributes to our daily lives and is a showcase for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math).
The fitout required extensive sound proofing to perimeter walls and the slab above due to the large number of children that will occupy SparkLab at any given time. The bespoke, high specification fitout featured a core of partially exposed, limewashed plywood walls that were lined with various coloured Perspex sheets. These were backlit with feature lighting and were surrounded by interactive displays from around the world. These displays were incorporated into locally manufactured joinery components.
An impressive amount of feature-lighting was installed throughout the fitout, along with projectors and special cameras to enhance the entertainment of the children.
