Reinforcing the values of the RSL, the artwork plays a significant cultural role in the overall upgrade of Box Hill RSL.
Through a collaboration with BSPN architects, Tilt was engaged to design and install the graphic artwork and sculptural tower.
Working from a supplied artistic concept Tilt worked closely with the architects to ensure the outcome meet the project team expectations.
To add depth to the image, a series of folds were integrated into the graphic artwork panels.
This detail resulted in a unique fabrication method to ensure the digitally printed image would not be compromised through the folding process.
Working closely with the fabricator we developed a custom tool to enable a consistent fold.
Iterative prototypes and samples were central in guiding both the RSL board members and architect through the various design options.
These included varying printing and coating techniques as well as optimising the density and spacing of the folded elements.
Measuring 15 x 4m, the poppy field graphic provides a unique entry of the club. Combined with the sculptural tower at the street front, the artwork provides a strong visual signpost for the community.

Tilt took the concept design for the feature wall element of our project in Box Hill and turned it into a reality. Working closely with ourselves, our client and the head building contractor Tilt were able to address design, cost and construction parameters to achieve an outcome that has been well received by all. We look forward to working with Tilt in the future – Michael Thom, Architect / Director, BSPN Architecture
