Exhibition Design

Jewish Holocaust Museum, Melbourne

Jewish Holocaust Museum, Melbourne

Primarily, exhibition design is about making meaningful and memorable environments. Our approach is to develop environments that immerse and engage visitors. Lilford Smith are practiced in designing a wide range of visitor experiences focused on museum and cultural exhibitions and interpretation. Working closely with clients to establish the project brief we aim to establish the best way to deliver meaning to the target audience. We develop exhibitions around intellectual frameworks and cultural material, regularly working with clients to develop thematic and narrative approaches to storytelling.

Following a staged methodology, we work closely with clients from concept design and development, through to final documentation and installation. Our work uses a range of methods to express visualisations for client understanding including various styles of renderings, animations and fly-throughs, mood boards, colour palettes, conceptual floor plans and physical models.

The use of objects and cultural material is central to the museum experience. Our experience working with clients such as The British Museum and Museums Victoria reflects our understanding and passion for the interpretation of cultural material.



We utilise a wide range of exhibition media to produce contemporary and layered experiences that bring richness to storytelling.  Working closely with multimedia producers Lilford Smith are experienced in the use of current technology and techniques in digital delivery, using technology appropriately to add to the visitor experience.
