We developed wayfinding and information signage to support a complete visitor experience at Meridian Energy’s sites, starting with the iconic Manapōuri Power Station. 

Having the right conversation at the right time became our project mantra and ensured that the design never upstaged the environment, remained timeless and was built to last.

Outdoor sites used rough-sawn frames, user-friendly typography and illustrated maps highlighting the activities on each site. The indoor signage system at Manapōuri embraced the more industrial nature of the site, reminding the visitor of what it took to build this remarkable underground power station, combining social history and technical information.
