Paragon has completed theming and fitout work on ZAAP Thai Nottingham, the second in a growing chain of uniquely themed, street food style Thai restaurants, which aim to replicate a stylish Thai street scene as a backdrop to enjoying authentic cuisine.
Paragon Creative was approached to create a highly detailed themed train front intended to act as a unique feature to the new restaurant. The design is based on the typical passenger and freight trains that pass through the markets in Bangkok, which often are set up literally on the tracks. Paragon created the main structure of the train front in timber before this was scenically treated to create a highly realistic metallic finish. Additional detail was added to make the lights and windscreen wipers flash and move. The train was designed so that visitors will be able to climb on board creating a fun photo opportunity.
Paragon Creative was also responsible for additional theming and fit-out within the restaurant to re-create the surrounding ‘market’ environment as well as a stylish backdrop behind the train. The train had an incredibly quick turnaround, being built and installed in under six weeks and now sits proudly as a fantastic addition to this quirky and fun restaurant
