Interior Fit Out

Escape to Freight Island is a breathtaking new indoor and outdoor venue in the heart of the city. Forged from the former Piccadilly train station freight depot, this remarkable venue is a testament to inventive design. It boasts an array of bars, restaurants, stages, dance floors, a roller rink, and even a concealed cinema. Each bar and restaurant have been thoughtfully tailored to its commercial resident’s unique identity.

The construction approach primarily revolves around the ingenious use of repurposed shipping containers, expertly arranged to form open, welcoming spaces, and each adorned with individually designed seating and tables.
