Mint Street

The Tower of London

Paragon Creative is pleased to announce the successful completion of yet another project at the Tower of London. During spring last year we installed a new exhibition located in what was originally the Royal Mint, in the outer ward of the Tower – or Mint Street as it became known. The exhibition is called "Coins and Kings: The Royal Mint at the Tower"; and Paragon’s role included the design development, build and installation of all the exhibits required. We also built a number of external sculptures which are located around the outside street area and these are fitted with audio to form an atmospheric "soundscape". The Tower of London is a World Heritage Site and a Scheduled Ancient Monument and this puts significant restrictions upon any work that can be done by Paragon. When installing the exhibition structures, it was essential that we respected the fabric of the building by not drilling or creating any new holes in the structure. Paragon’s expertise and knowledge of working in historic buildings such as the Tower of London has meant that we have developed a whole range of techniques for design and building exciting exhibition structures which do not impact on the historic buildings which they occupy. The Coins and Kings exhibition has been shortlisted for the Museums + Heritage award for best permanent exhibition.
