Interpretation at a heritage place means all the ways of presenting the cultural significance of a place. The built fabric and artefacts at a place are generally the primary source for interpretation. The treatment of the existing fabric and artefacts is often combined with the use of the place, activities at the place and introduced materials and techniques to communicate the stories of the place and enrich visitors’ experiences.
Interpretation, the telling of the stories of heritage places, is a key component of the work of Palassis Architects, and can range from small built elements of a project to comprehensive interpretation plans and strategies for complex places and projects. We also have extensive experience designing, documenting and administering interpretive elements.
