The 1500 sqm Kandinsky Lounge at Sheremetyevo International Airport, Moscow comfortably accommodates over 320 guests in a layout which is based around a central core and gallery. These link two separate lounge areas, one at either end, and contain the reception, washrooms, shower rooms, meeting rooms, sleeping rooms and a small library / gallery facility.
Our remit was to create an interior that provides a memorable, comfortable, relaxing and characterful guest experience while ensuring that front of house and back of house circulation overlap as little as possible to ease flow for each.
The design language is based around simple geometric forms and bold colour accents inspired by the pioneering, Russian abstract painter, Wassily Kandinsky, after whom the lounge is named and examples of whose work feature along with other Russian artefacts and works of art to showcase the depth of Russia’s artistic talent.
By combining the purposeful layout which incorporates a wide range of seating and activity options for guests with premium materials, points of interest and impressive works of art, the Kandinsky Lounge provides guests with a highly enjoyable and relaxing pre-flight experience.
