Forest Heritage Centre

Dwellingup, WA

The Forest Heritage Centre is located among jarrah forest near the historic timber town of Dwellingup in Western Australia.

Freeman Ryan Design was engaged to design and coordinate the installation of an exhibition that creatively interprets the stories of Dwellingup’s jarrah forest heritage. Themes are highlighted with large-scale backlit graphics, including spectacular close-ups of local flora and a timeline of how the people have interacted, valued and lived with the forest over history. A central platform ‘wave’ constructed from local timber to display furniture made by students of the Australian School of Fine Wood has been envisaged for a future stage.
