The Newt - Somerset

back button.png

The Newt in Somerset is a country estate with splendid gardens, woodland and farmland. The core is Georgian, with limestone buildings the colour of burnt orange, the seat of the Hobhouse family for more than two centuries. Displayways were contracted to consult on the specification and methods for all signage, wayfinding and graphics. We then fabricated all metalwork and produced all printed signs and graphics. Within the project were some unusual and innovative approaches to signage. See list below.

GREY PANELS - Exterior spray finish to steel, digital print and then an exterior 8 year life lacquer applied


BRONZE COLOURED PANELS - Bronzed toned brass panels, etch and fill lettering with an exterior 8 year life lacquer applied


FIRE EXIT SIGNS - Screen printed in photoluminescent ink


TIMBER POSTS - Cut timber posts with sprayed metal signs inserted into a chainsaw cut groove and mechanically affixed


TREE TRUNKS - Chain saw used to create grooves into existing timber tree trunks, panels then mechanically affixed into the trunk.
