The Project

N°1 Pump Station Museum

Collaboration with Paul Kloeden and Exhibition Services

Next Project


This project comprised the development of an entire museum fit-out in a former heritage listed, steam pump station as part of the National Trust‚ Golden Pipeline Project.

A collaboration between Mulloway Studio, Exhibition Services and Paul Kloeden, for the National Trust of Australia (WA), it was undertaken in three stages, beginning in 2001 and completed in 2006.

The team put together a range of approaches and technologies that explore new ways of presenting

heritage buildings and providing place-based interpretation.

A large story-telling machine has been developed for this exhibition, where conceptually the building remains a primary artefact. Use of lighting, soundscapes create a seamless experience without conflicting or masking the original building and pumps.

N°1 Pump Station has been recognised with a series of local and international awards, and was chosen as one of the world's top 20 museums in 2006.
