Shed 5 opened last year as a modern Greek restaurant located in Melbourne’s newly renovated docklands on the Yarra river. Melbourne’s Loop Creative chose a contemporary industrial look for the interior using steel and wood in keeping with the history of the 19th century heritage listed docklands.

N.B. We just got word that Shed 5 is closed to create a new expanded concept (we hope the tiled wall stays). For more, visit Shed 5.

Above: The large tiled wall is a nod to the 19th century railway station. The antique blue and white tiles are a Mediterranean touch, which tie in with the Greek food being served.

Above: On the ceiling are vintage lights from a British railway station sourced from Trainspotters in the UK. The 120-year-old wood flooring is original to the space.

Above: On the wall is a row of Pressed Glass Bowl Wall Lights by Tom Dixon.

Above: A custom steel banquette runs the length of the wall. The round Screw Top Tables with oak tops are by Tom Dixon with Replica Jean Prouve Standard Chairs.
