The Cathedral of St John the Baptist in Norwich is the second largest Roman Catholic Cathedral in Britain. Ugly Studios were commissioned to provide interpretive displays within the Cathedral’s new Heritage Lottery-funded visitor centre, ‘The Narthex’.
Narthex means ‘transition space’ between the church and the outside world, with the main interpretive area being a corridor. So we designed a series of consecutive, interactive and interlinked displays, in keeping with our new Cathedral branding, to welcome, orientate and inspire visitors.
Fourteen eye-catching, informative and engaging interactive interpretation points delivered in easily updated modular segments. The display includes a ‘Current Information’ stand, brass-rubbing trail, stained-glass jigsaw puzzle and eco-Cathedral feature, as well as double-sided panels with large format photographs and architectural detail.

The work of Ugly Studios is inspiring, engaging, clear and informative and has received amazing visitor feedback.
