We are delighted to reveal our design work for Train Manchester, a new gym offering in Castlefield, in collaboration with Corporation Pop who we worked closely with on all aspects of branding and identity.
Moving away from the ‘typical’ gym design, the interior has been created to be innovative and unique with a ‘spit & sawdust’ industrial feel. Existing materials were reused throughout the project as well as hundreds of scaffold boards and recycled wooden pallets for wall coverings and seating.
Bold lettering, way-finding and the use of graphics throughout demonstrate Train’s strong identity and individuality, featured not just on signage and walls but as markers on jump-boxes, vintage fly-posers and the member’s t-shirts, ‘The Iron Horses’.
In keeping with the ‘Train’ theme, vintage train tickets are displayed in corridors grouped as colour-ways; their RAL colours matched to the painted boards leading you to the changing areas upstairs.
Train is located in Castlefield, Manchester. It is open 7 days a week and offers a variety of strength and conditioning training for everyone. For more information visit the website here.
