Refit and redevelopment of Carter Observatory in Kelburn, Wellington.
Carter Observatory has for decades played a leading role in New Zealand astronomy. The client wanted to promote the observatory as a place of accessible public learning - including the remarkable experience of looking at the stars. We were tasked with bringing this goal to reality.
Refining the client’s initial concept drawings, we constructed a range of display elements, all within a cost-effective budget. Features included light boxes, interactive displays, a space black hole and a small theatre.
