The lookout is designed to take visitors on a journey to gain an overview of the site’s history, the local environment and current operations
NSW Ports runs the Enfield Intermodel Centre, which is a 60-hectare site. NSW Ports created a man-made lookout by recycling soil and waste from the clearing of the site. As part of giving back, NSW Ports wanted to provide the community with interpretive signage to explain the local heritage and history of the site.
As part of our research and ideas generation, we put forward the idea of recycling materials such as railway sleepers and metal rail tracks to link back to the site as part of NSW Port's objective of having interpretive signage, linking the materiality of the signs to the site.
Concepts through environmental inspiration
We drew inspiration from the site's sloping pathway rising up and down along Mt Enfield's walkway and created a master graphic that has strong visual impact across all signage applications.
The local community attended the site's official opening on April 28 to celebrate the opening of the site, of which they had a large part of planning.
