Canadian Museum of History

The distinctive architecture of the Canadian Museum of History symbolizes the landscape of the country and dynamics of its history. In renovating the Museum’s boutique and special exhibit gallery, L+D sought to ensure the new spaces would perfectly complement and reflect the spirit and flow of the overall structure. Services such as exhibit audio/visual connectivity, lighting, security and housekeeping were designed in for optimal functionality while remaining concealed from the public, preserving the Museum’s unique ability to transport visitors through space and time as they revisit the cultural history of Canada and other nations. Careful planning ensured the project was completed without disruption to the daily operations of the Museum.
