The Railway

Located in the prominent Quay Side location The Railway Bar and Eatery required a full re-design after many years of neglect.


The Studio was asked to take on the project and transform the interior space into a vibrant bar which would reflect the heritage of the building and re-establish it at the forefront of the market. The building had a strong sense of history and character and its proximity to the National Steam Railway enabled the design to develop an industrial feel. Using a mix of natural woods, concrete, reclaimed bricks with an eye-catching colour palette.
Throughout the bar, vintage furnishings were mixed with custom designed pieces adding depth and warmth to the finished interior. The lighting was significant in bringing the design together utilising contemporary discreet fittings we were able to create moods of softly illuminated spaces whilst the industrial feature lights enhanced the scheme.
