Downer engaged Artefact to develop tailored Heritage Interpretation Plans and deliver design elements for both stations, while providing advice to ensure that the built heritage of the stations was protected during works. Our dedicated interpretation team approached the project from a multidisciplinary perspective, using extensive historical research to bring the heritage of the stations to life through murals, signage and movable heritage displays. The built heritage team, working closely with the Downer design team, provided considered advice to conserve and enhance the heritage elements of Roseville and Banksia Stations.
The heritage interpretation was nominated for a Best Social Outcomes Award at the 2021 Australian Infrastructure Sustainability Council Annual Gala Awards.
Artefact successfully delivered a suite of tailored interpretive elements for Roseville and Banksia Stations, working with local designers and local Aboriginal artist Danielle Mate to create meaningful interpretation that expressed the unique heritage and connections to Country around each station.
Danielle Mate hand painted Layers, a colourful mural showing the layers of heritage, Country and community, in the subway of Banksia Station.
