Liberty Tree Fountain, Carlow
Our wayfinding strategy for the town of Carlow in south-east Ireland is complete and we are now working up the detailed design which will go out to tender at the end of the month.
The project has been a real pleasure so we’re delighted to have been appointed by Carlow County Council for a second phase: to widen the focus of the wayfinding strategy and deliver a scheme for the whole county.
The town centre scheme will provide gateway, monolith and street name plaques at the key destinations and decisions points across the town. Our design concept incorporates the robust nature of Corten style finish with muted colours that reflect the town’s heritage, plus a cut out of a stylised castle profile turret which acts as a window to frame important views.

We have been working closely with local stakeholders and our heritage consultant Judith Hill to develop the interpretation sign content and locations and look forward to extending and developing the wayfinding concept across the county, to identify and highlight Carlow’s other attractions for visitors and locals to explore further.
