wish list

Aptly named because of its close proximity to Bury St Edmunds train station, the Station Steakhouse is yet another Tibbatts Abel project that Chantelle Lighting are proud to have been a part of. The fabulous American 1920's themed venue is the perfect location to showcase some amazing industrial lighting concepts.

The challenge

The Design team at Tibbatts Abel were tasked with creating an American 1920's themed interior for the Station Steakhouse whilst playing on the station theme because of the venue's location.

Tibbatts Abel wanted to create a venue reminiscent of a 1920's art deco style Chicago train station and chose to create train themed dining areas including traditional carriage style seating booths while the cocktail bar is a first class lounge.

The solution

Materials used in the refurbishment of the bar and restaurant, which was previously known as the Linden Tree, were chosen to reflect the train theme, with suitcases being embedded into the bar. "All with all of the materials used in the refurbishment, very careful consideration was given to the lighting," said Adam Tibbatts from Tibbatts Abel.

"We have worked extensively with Chantelle Lighting on other projects and know that they specialise in industrial style lighting. We felt that this matched our brief for the interior perfectly and worked closely with their project team to come up with a range of lights which complemented the different areas of the venue. 

"From wall lights to larger caged feature lights using materials such as copper we feel that the range of different lights that we used in the venue created a cosy atmosphere reminiscent of train journey in the 1920's."

 The result

The Station Steakhouse now features a number of different areas of a train station. The Waiting Area in the main bar flows into a Cocktail Lounge, First Class Dining Area and Platform Area which overlooks a terrace and back garden. The ladies toilets are also disguised as part of a Victorian train carriage.

"All of the components of the refurbishment work really well together; from the reclaimed signage from train stations to the industrial themed lighting. Customers really do feel like they have been transported back in time to America in the 1920s and we are really proud of the finished look," concluded Adam Tibbatts.
