Clubhouse lounge designed to provide relaxed luxury with a Manhattan feel
The lounge is bounded on two sides by full-height views of the runways and Virgin aircraft immediately below.
In the centre of the lounge, a cloud-shaped cocktail bar is enclosed by a diaphanous, curving wall of stainless steel rods and walnut fins, mediating views from and through the space and creating a series of distinct areas.
This is the heart of the lounge, around and through which guests move in a rhythmic syncopated flow to the many amenities of the lounge.
