Innerpeffray Library – Heritage Trail Wayfinding

Innerpeffray Library – Heritage Trail Wayfinding

Starting in 1680, Innerpeffray Library is Scotland’s oldest free lending library. It is situated in rural Perthshire, in grounds that have a history going back to the Roman invasion of Britain.

Working with the design agency Collaborate, we carried out the construction design and fabrication of a series of heritage trail way finders. Tying in with the history of the library and grounds, we cast a series of oversized books, roman slabs and boulders. These objects were sculpted in-house and then reproduced in cast Jesmonite: a rapid setting acrylic modified cementitious compound. Once cured and de-moulded, the surfaces were etched with text and inset with enamel interpretation panels.

We also made a series of Corten steel ‘open book’ structures with cnc cut animals for children to discover as a fun activity.
