Transforming a 1940’s packing shed in the Huon Valley.

The Apple Shed is an ambitious project undertaken by the talented and passionate team behind Willie Smith’s Organic Cider.

Futago was brought onto the project by Managing Director Sam Reid and Creative Director Glen Barry, to interpret the rich history of the apple industry in the Huon Valley. Our team – who worked closely with Andrew (co-Director at Willie Smith’s) and Ellie Smith to bring the apple stories to life – included former Redevelopment Content Manager from the Tasmanian Museum & Art Gallery Bill Seager, and writer, Chris Viney. The design was very much a collaboration with Cumulus Architects on a limited budget and short timeline to transform what was a tired, dusty and dark space into what it is today.
