kw: Heritage Cabinetry
Laurent was approached by National Parks and Wildlife Service NSW who are the caretakers of Cape Byron’s iconic Lighthouse. They need to be able to safely add small artefacts to the existing heritage cabinetry displays.
The lighthouse was constructed in 1901, and the building is heritage-listed. As part of the brief, Laurent was not allowed to interfere with the existing shelving or brickwork. He was also required to use Hoop Pine to match existing cabinetry. You will notice the colour tones do not currently match as the new materials have not oxidised and matured yet.
