Axiom welcome New Norcia

By Latest News

new_norcia

Axiom are delighted to announce that we’ll be working closely with the Benedictine Community of New Norcia to design, develop and implement signage across a variety of wayfinding and interpretation installations throughout the townsite.

New Norcia is Australia’s only monastic town. The site was founded by Spanish Benedictine monks as a mission to the Aborigines in 1847. It has had continuous occupation by the Benedictine Community since that time. The Benedictine way of life, based on the sixth century Rule of St Benedict, gives the town its primary identity and significance. The Rule gave the town its origin and has guided its development over 165 years. It has shaped practices, values and objectives which continue within the monastery and the town today. It is a distinctive way of life that exemplifies intangible heritage of outstanding significance and rarity.

We are honoured that the monks have bestowed upon Axiom the responsibility of respectfully interpreting this most significant site and we look forward to working with them as this exciting project progresses.

Our sentence has been extended!

By Latest News

We were originally sentenced to serve out a two year term with Fremantle Prison but we’re delighted to announce that due to all our hard work on the chain gang the ‘guvna’ has extended our term by another year!

It seems that we’ve been model inmates and our integrated wayfinding signage system, comprehensive interpretive installations and publications brought them home not only a Western Australian Heritage Award but also helped to secure their World Heritage listing!

We’ve been told that the warden has still got plenty for us to do and is not that keen on giving us a sentence reprieve. We’re looking forward to finishing what we started and helping ensure that Fremantle Prison remains one of Western Australia’s premier tourism destinations.

Go directly to gaol, do not pass go!

The Fremantle Prison is one of Western Australia’s premier heritage sites, centrally located in the heart of the port city of Fremantle. The Prison was built by convicts in the 1850s and was closed as a place of incarceration in 1991 after 136 years of continuous use. It was opened to the public in 1992 as a tourist site and in recognition of its heritage value.

Axiom Design Partners will be serving out a 2-year term with Fremantle Prison, charged with being the most suitably qualified design firm to develop an integrated wayfinding signage system and comprehensive interpretive graphics installations at this heritage listed site, in preparation for possible World Heritage listing in 2010.
