Durham Cathedral Open Treasure
Design and Management
Durham Cathedral Open Treasure is an award-winning, contemporary experience, set within a 900-year-old cathedral. The exhibitions presented across four unique architectural spaces in a stunning UNESCO World Heritage Site, explore the story of St Cuthbert and the spread of early Christianity, monastic life at the Priory, and cathedral life post-reformation. Our designs capture the reverence and gravitas whilst remaining accessible. Visitors can feel the atmosphere of spirituality all around while the stories unfold before them.
The team at Studio MB were responsible for all design and implementation stages for this project, from inception to completion, including research, narrative planning, content development, concept design, developed design and technical design, graphic design, AV software and AV hardware design, lighting design, script and copy writing, illustration, plus project management, and contract administration.
