Client: Shetland Amenity Trust
Bespoke joinery and fit out: Elmwood
Environment was a key consideration for Shetland Amenity Trust when integrating the island’s Museum and Archives into one new innovative new visitor attraction. The maritime location of the building strongly influenced its exterior design, while internally natural light and traditional timbers were maximised to create a welcoming ambience.
The museum set works included display case furniture designed by GBDM and produced, coordinated and installed by Elmwood using eco-friendly materials to help preserve the 3,000 unique artefacts on show to the public.
“Elmwood are always helpful – nothing is too much trouble and they often go out their way to help us realise some of our more adventurous ideas. Their work is always of a very high standard and we have recommended them to a number of our clients who have also been really happy with their work and enjoyed working with them, as have we.”
