The Station Tavern – Cambridge, UK
Our Saxon brick slips have transformed this classic eatery.
This case study finds us dipping our toes into the elite of quintessential British pubs. Young’s have developed a fantastic reputation for creating some of the best British styled modern public houses in the south of England.
Our typically British looking and equally British named, Saxon brick slip has found its way into their latest project.
The Station Tavern is the first Young’s pub in Cambridge and is conveniently placed to serve the crowds of thirsty commuters waiting for trains from the city’s station.
With over 150m2 of brick slips required to complete this installation its fair to say that the use of brick wall cladding was high on the product agenda during initial design stages.
The brief evidently utilized the use brick slips and amplified it to its loudest level. Brick clad Arches, brick slip covered doorways and large generous feature walls were present within the design. A colossal development and project that would showcase the use of our Saxon brick slips to their finest.
The interior is a mix between the modern 21st century bar and eatery design styles, such as an exposed ceiling and air conditioning and subtle lighting, and an old world of relaxed public and social interaction. The whole space gives a feeling of coziness as well as modernity.
The whole establishment boasts a large space with lots of seating, padded stools around the large bar, leather armchairs around small round wooden tables, padded seating along the side wall on a raised area.
One large main room offers up a selection of expertly executed brick slip feature walls. A key feature within this room and one that automatically commands your attention is a 6ft embedded clock face that is set within and around our Saxon brick slips. This feature is totally unique and is an absolute display of ingenuity and helps to exhibit the diverse ways in which our brick slip cladding can be used.
The whole room is broken up by brick gigantic brick slip clad arches and exposed air ducts, along side the piping these arches bring the whole room together and span the floor space with ease and grandeur.
The Station tavern also has the benefit of a couple of living room areas which are carefully cluttered with bookcases and work in harmony with the brick slip cladding.
Pillars of Saxon brick slips feature prominently throughout the bar area offering surfaces that can be used for posters, chalk boards and optics. The use of brick slip corners has given magnitude and strength to the pillars and provided a traditional bar aesthetic.
Saxon brick slips are a firm favorite here at brickslips.co.uk; regularly underrated they bring an unrivalled sense of authenticity. The brick slips have been installed with clinical accuracy; the use of Saxon brick slip corners to develop the arch ways and pillars has brought an earthy realism to the whole project.
The brick slip cladding was installed using our porcequick rapid set adhesive and set with a 10mm tile spacers. The use of traditional pointing mortar on this project was a great choice, drawing the eye to the product rather than the joint. Overall the use of our products on this installation showcase just how realistic and special our brick slip products are.
This bar project is a fine and shining example of just how versatile Saxon brick slips can be. If you were ever thinking of questioning whether this product makes the cut then here it is to see and behold. Used and incorporated within this superior bar project the Station Tavern have certainly caught the money train with this wonderful design.(Larger images are available to the right side of this page)
