SUPERSENSE was engaged by Sydney Metro to undertake a heritage interpretation plan for stations on its $25bn Sydney Metro West line project.

The Heritage Interpretation Plan takes a comprehensive approach to ensuring that the cultural heritage significance of the stations is communicated effectively to visitors. The plan involves detailed content research, a review of archaeological documents, and an analysis of station sites, and it seeks to respect the unique cultural connections that people have with those places. The plan also aims to engage visitors through various multi-sensory devices and mediums, including physical, sound-based, digital, interactive, and programmatic elements.

The plan places a high value on collaboration and consultation with Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people, including local communities and organisations. It recognises their invaluable insights and contributions, and the recommendations are designed to respect and respond to these identified audiences.

A key tenant of the plan was to integrate interpretation into stages of conservation planning, placemaking, public art and landscape and architectural design stages. The plan also places a strong emphasis on sustainability, offering practical and cost-effective ways to update or change interpretation over time, ensuring its long-term viability and relevance.

The Sydney Metro West Heritage Interpretation Plan offers an integrated, comprehensive, and thoughtful approach to preserving and interpreting the cultural heritage significance of stations and their precincts, facilitating enriching experiences for Metro customers.
