This MyLounge project was an international scheme located amongst the departure gates at Brisbane Airport, Australia. Following similar design principles in the My Lounge brand, this project adapted the concept to suit the Australian market. The design retained the relaxed, welcoming, and homely atmosphere while maximising the social style of lounging favoured by the client. A ‘make your own’ cocktail bar, self-service bistro, comfortable lounging space and games room, cater to the guests every need.
A large portion of the project was bespoke joinery design that carefully divided up the space. Reclaimed timber, terrazzo tops and exposed concrete finishes are some of the materials used to capture the texture and character of the space. The modern industrial look, rich in warm tones was accented with bright colours and living plants to entice and excite.
International projects are a great and welcomed challenge working closely with local architects, engineers and project managers to deliver this amazing Lounge. Airport construction projects are challenging in any country, however, our specialist experience within this sector proved invaluable in overcoming hurdles and anticipating potential issues early.
As the site was exposed on 3 sides, the client wanted to maximise the potential of the site boundary. The external elevations needed careful consideration and the final design reflects the personality of the spaces within, promoting the lounge to passing travellers now eager to participate in the experience.
“After many successful years working with Chris and the team on our UK lounges, when we made the decision to go open internationally they were our first port of call. As always we have been impressed by their collaborative approach, creativity and dedication to the project.”
