Peter Pan Moat Brae
After our initial invitation to begin the exhibition fit out, The Hub’s working relationship with the Moat Brae Trust and PLB Projects flourished and a cohesive and successful partnership ensued. The weeks that followed saw the development of a truly spectacular exhibition that captured the essence of the story the house inspired.
The history and story that surrounds the Moat Brae house, implored the designers and client to keep the element of magic and intrigue alive when designing this exhibition. Thus a large portion of the exhibition is highly interactive. Ranging from large interactive AV walls, which see young visitors follow Tinkerbelle around the room, to AV systems that can be used as key educational tools, in the retelling the history and stories of the house. Another physically interactive piece sees Nanas Kennel from the Peter Pan stories transform from an ordinary dogs kennel upon its first appearance, to a secret tunnel just big enough for young children to crawl through.
The furniture that now fills the walls of the Moat Brae house was largely made in house by The Hub and was specifically crafted in order to easily integrate into the exhibition. With the house being a Grade B Listed building due care and consideration was essential to the development of the pieces, with consideration taken for how we would transport and then fit the exhibition pieces with ease. Our understanding of the desired aesthetic and vision for the pieces in the house, and the need for the furniture to be seamlessly fit into the house required the production of the pieces to be highly controlled and pre-planned. Every proportion and element of the furniture was measured and accounted for prior to its transportation, ensuring the overall execution of the fit out ran without fault.Photo Credit ©
