This week our builders have been busying themselves with behind the scenes arrangements to progress the next stages of construction. So I thought you might like to look ahead with me, to get a taste of what the Heritage Hub is going to be like when it’s finished.
Firstly, hot off the press, here’s the latest image of how it’s going to look. Very smart!
We want the inside to be stylish too, and are looking forward to receiving the draft mood boards soon. These will help us to consider the look and feel of the internal spaces, and to make good interior design choices, bearing everyone’s needs in mind.
Like our builders, we too have been making behind the scenes plans. But ours are about adorning the building and its surrounding site. There are two strands to these: internal and external interpretive displays that reveal a potted history of the historic county of Gloucestershire’s cultural and natural heritage; and, on a functional level, information sharing media and signage that will show visitors what the Heritage Hub has to offer. We’ll be working with stakeholders and community groups to develop these over the coming months. And we’re eagerly waiting to hear if our allied bid to Arts Council England has been successful, as it would allow us to include more art installations as part of our storytelling. We should know the outcome in mid May. ‘Fingers crossed!
