The Wayfinding Scheme of the Year 2020
Winner of The Architectural Sign of the Year 2020
Originally built in the 1860s to house troops, Chelsea Barracks is now a high profile, mixed-use development which includes town houses, apartments, ground level retail, gardens and a repurposed 19th century chapel. Maynard created a wayfinding masterplan that sought to achieve a balance between the history of the site whilst looking to the future. The result is a suite of bespoke signage that complements the architectural style of the development whilst respecting the heritage and character of the local area. Vitreous enamel, cast iron and bronze were amongst the materials used.
Eastbourne Town Centre
The scheme was developed to create better connections between the seafront, Eastbourne Town Centre and the newly created Devonshire Quarter cultural district which features two theatres, a new conference centre and the International Tennis Centre. The aim of the scheme is to give visitors and confidence to explore Eastbourne, stay longer and see what the town has to offer.
Interplan Sign Systems
London Luton Airport
The wayfinding scheme at LLA was the first project to incorporate the airport’s new brand colours and was designed, manufactured and installed by Interplan as part of LLA’s £160m transformation. The production of a comprehensive suite of ASIAD (Aviation Secuirity in Airport Development) Compliant Directional Totems, including the development of a bomb resistant product, was outstanding.
