The Woodhorn museum in Northumberland was opened to the public in October 2006. The brief for this project was to produce tactile floor plans of the ground and first floors, to be accessible and engaging for both sighted and unsighted visitors.
The panels are constructed from beech and steamed beech veneer with coloured acrylic detailing. The map detail of the first floor is raised up from the surface of the panel to emphasise that it is located on a different level to the ground floor.
Both panels contain a representation of the atrium access ramp as well as a tactile key label in large print and Braille.
