Re-Presenting Eltham Palace
Museums and historic properties/sites
Eltham Palace provides visitors with a startling juxtaposition of stylish 1930s design and medieval architecture set in exquisite grounds. Bishops and monarchs dominate the early stories, wealthy industrialists and their high profile friends the latter. Light touch, flexible and stylish interpretation brings the palace and people to life.
Re-Presenting Eltham Palace won this category because:
Good dwell time and visitor engagement through a good balance of interpretation without compromising rooms. The project exhibits good layered interpretation, good use of media to enhance key messaging, along with clear aims and themes. It is well executed to create new perspectives on an inflexible space, so getting away from a linear visitor flow.
