The Ennis Road Bays (the Bays) are located under the northern approach to the Sydney Harbour Bridge in Kirribilli. Constructed in the 1940s, they form part of the Sydney Harbour Bridge Heritage Precinct, which is listed on the NSW State Heritage Register and the National Heritage List.
GML prepared a Heritage Interpretation Plan as part of the conversion of the Bays into NSW Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) corporate headquarters in 2016. The plan involved undertaking historical research, identifying audiences, key themes and stories, and recommending interpretive devices. GML collaborated with RMS on the device design and to develop detailed interpretive content. Ground inlays and digital media add visual interest and warmth to the entry foyer and provide RMS employees and visitors with an insight into the place’s history.
Within a tight timeframe, GML worked with the client, architect, builders and suppliers to ensure key interpretive devices were successfully installed by occupation.
