SUPERSENSE worked with a GBA Interpretation Plan to develop stories, display objects and interpret key stories about Marrickville Hospital. The buildings and site have been adaptively reused as a new Library and residential development, designed by BVN.

SUPERSENSE took design inspiration from the rhomboid shape of the site and the zig zag shaped roof of the new library rooftop in developing an appropriate and innovative outcome that bridges contemporary and heritage. Trigger designed a series of bespoke cabinets, object mounts and cast bronze signage that feature in the contemporary and historic spaces. Trigger provided authorship of interpretive text, sourcing of heritage photography, and selection of appropriate artisans to craft each element.
