Central Washington University Science II – Geologic Exhibit

In collaboration with Integrus Architecture, helveticka created a geologic timeline for CWU’s new Science II building, which opened to students for the fall 2016 quarter.

Demo Image

The exhibit maps to an actual scale model of the timeline built into the floor of a 58.5-meter-long corridor. helveticka’s design team worked closely with CWU faculty members on panel content.

Demo Image

Eight custom-built display cases house rare rock samples from around the globe – and, in the case of a meteorite slice, from outer space as well. The cabinets were finished to match existing building casework.

Demo Image

For the “Earth’s Interior” section, eight-foot-tall digital graphics were mounted onto custom-fabricated metal panels. helveticka also performed installation services for the exhibit.

Demo Image

A pair of touchscreens – with content designed and programmed by helveticka – help round out and localize billions of years of geologic history.

Demo Image

helveticka worked with the architects to select and locate the display’s lighting system. 2' x 2' Plexiglas panels (far right) enable students and faculty to change and update related subject content.

Demo Image

The exhibit is designed for prospective students and their parents, touring K-12 classes, and even current students – whether science majors or not.

Demo Image

In addition to the geologic timeline, helveticka was asked to develop a donor recognition system to acknowledge sponsored classrooms and labs.

Demo Image

Throughout the building, a series of 15 signs explains the efforts undertaken by CWU to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.

Northwest Museum of Arts & Culture – SPOMa: Spokane Modern Architecture, 1948–73

SPOMa: Spokane Modern Architecture, 1948–73 opened March 2, 2013 for a scheduled 10-month run at the MAC.

Demo Image

In addition to nearly 400 photographs of some of the finest Mid-Century Modern architecture in the Pacific Northwest, the exhibit features art, furniture, and music of the era.

Demo Image

Custom display systems and clever mounting hardware keep the look and feel of the exhibit as streamlined and as minimalist as the architecture itself.

Complementing an exhibit in the Northwest Museum of Arts & Culture’s main gallery was a short documentary film chronicling the history of Spokane’s Modern architecture movement.

Sisters of Providence

A 22-foot-long display honoring Spokane's Sisters of Providence is made of custom-fabricated aluminum panels featuring the names of every Sister who served over a 125-year period.

Demo Image

In addition to more than 400 names, the display features archival images printed on the powder-coated aluminum panels.

Demo Image

An existing sculpture of Mother Joseph, who established Sacred Heart Hospital in 1886, was included in the display.

Demo Image

McEuen Park

Funded by Avista, the grand pavilion at Coeur d’Alene’s McEuen Park can accommodate up to 200 people and is available for private rental.

Demo Image

helveticka designed the pavilion’s 27’ x 8’ LED-lit and powder-coated aluminum sign; long-time collaborator Hydrafab Northwest built and installed it.

Northwest Museum of Arts & Culture – Campbell House

The Campbell House Visitor Center is located on the main floor of the Campbell’s carriage house, and features an interactive experience and short history built around the museum’s historic turn-of-the-century home.

Demo Image

The three bays mimic what was likely the stable’s original configuration of the stables, housed in this space over 100 years ago.

Demo Image

One of the three custom-built display units used to house museum objects and ephemera.

Demo Image

The Schoolhouse Gallery

An interpretive exhibit sharing the history of education on the Five Mile Prairie north of Spokane, The Schoolhouse Gallery is housed within the 1939 Five Mile School.

Demo Image

Hand-crafted casework complements the interiors of the schoolhouse; faux chalkboards and a script-style font add whimsy.

Demo Image

Ephemera like report cards and progress reports helped to humanize the exhibit while supplementing the narrative.

Demo Image

Spokane Public Facilities District – Convention Center

The signage and wayfinding system for Spokane’s $89 million Convention Center expansion required more than 600 signs to help visitors find their way around the campus.

Demo Image

Signage for sponsored exhibit halls is wrapped around existing concrete columns.

Demo Image

Visitors are oriented at the promenade that joins the original convention center with the recent addition.

Demo Image

Bouten Construction Company

To share its three-generation history, Bouten opted for an installation in its corporate headquarters. A modular re-bar system was used due to its availability, ease of fabrication, connection to construction, and low profile.

Demo Image

A labyrinth of narrow hallways, meant that the solution needed to be fairly flat and devoid of three-dimensional objects.

Demo Image

All graphic panels utilize a clip system that hangs on the horizontal rebar frame members, aiding in updating content.

Demo Image

Northwest Museum of Arts & Culture – Fibers of Life

Bringing to light 100 American Indian baskets from a collection of nearly 3,000, Fibers of Life demonstrated both the beauty and the utilitarian aspects of the weaver’s art. The space was designed to promote contemplation and reflection.

Demo Image

Suspended photographic tapestries, each 10' square, provided a sense of place while creating a separation between the baskets and the introductory area.

Demo Image

The density and arrangement of the exhibit evoked the intricacy of the basket patterns themselves.

Demo Image

Itron – Milestones Wall & OpenWay Demo Kit

A raised-relief, non-linear timeline featuring significant milestones in its history helps tell Itron’s unique story to visitors to the company’s corporate headquarters.

Demo Image

Powder-coated metal and Plexiglas combine to help weave Itron’s history with its technological achievements and breakthroughs.

Demo Image

A combination of off-the-shelf display items – customized with graphics, LED lighting, and additional components – make up Itron’s traveling demonstration kit. This “tech family” vignette includes an electric vehicle charging station and programmable thermostats.

Demo Image

The “busy family” vignette shows a typical house meter along with thermostats and a neighborhood network router.

Demo Image

Custom componentry for a programmable thermostat included product design, engineering, and fabrication.
