Ter Hooge Castle dates back to the 13th century and is one of the oldest estates in Walcheren. The castle as it is today was built between 1754-1757. The castle is surrounded by a large wooded park of 25 hectares under the management of Stichting Lynden Ter Hooge (LTH) who maintains the flora and fauna throughout the estate.
The park is open to general public with its paths through the woods and along the lakes providing a beautiful and rich landscape to its visitors. Ter Hooge estate is located just outside Middelburg on the Koudekerkseweg.
The design approach, font family and color scheme for the signage and wayfinding follows the same rules as developed for the Stichting Lynden Ter Hooge Identity and stationery.
The planning of signs starts with the type of park, number and type of visitors, how they arrive (by vehicle or walking), where they arrive, visibility of entrances from a distance, vehicular and pedestrian circulation within parks, main destinations, location of key areas etc, and key decision points. The information signs will increase visitor appreciation of the site, minimise management problems and maximise safety.
A total of 18 signs from 5 different types were placed.
