A extensive range of signage for Haddon Hall, a medieval stately home in Derbyshire. The family of elements uses materiality to stitch seamlessly into the environment without appearing jarring, instead respectful and reassuring.
Laser-cut leatherwork brings traditional techniques a sharpness and contemporary feel but the materials and colour helps root the elements in place. Bronze was chosen outdoor signs and although a material/colour familiar to the middle ages, it does not exist at Haddon. This allowed the signs to be sympathetic to its context and at the same time stand out subtly.
As safety was a big concern for the estate, the colour Red was used to highlight high risk areas – a colour both medival and cautionary.
