A new look for a new generation of Hornby Hobbies' enthusiasts.

The project’s scope included the creation of new experiential spaces dedicated to each of Hornby Hobbies’ revered brands, the expansion of retail areas, enhancements to the café, and new external signage. The new visitor centre’s interior design captures the vibrant and bold colours aligning with its rebranded identity. 

Inspiring people to enjoy and create their model world.

Working through the project from concept to completion, the team skilfully translated the vision crafted by brand specialists Harrison Fraser, into a tangible reality, and breathed new life into a cherished destination for all ages. 

Now, the reenergised and reimagined Wonder Works will surprise and delight all generations, connecting them with their passions and the brands they love.
