As a key part of an overall brand refresh for Gulf Air, JPA designed an all-new premium lounge at London’s Heathrow Airport. The contemporary, international atmosphere is influenced by strands of Arabic culture and Bahrain’s own traditions in pearl-fishing and local architecture to inform a unique and special space.
The high-ceilinged main lounge offers passengers a very comfortable and relaxing experience with lounge seating zones defined by stunning, metal-beaded curtains which veil views from area to area. This surrounds the central feature bar which adapts to be either self-service at quieter times if necessary or fully staffed at busy times.
The neutral, warm colours and understated, sophisticated materials palette are the perfect backdrop for the vibrant, blue velvet upholstered banquette seating and wrapped wall paneling and blue glass vanity units while stunning, colourful abstract works of art and contemporary urns and vases add a final layer of personality to ensure that passengers enjoy this compelling experience to the full.
