We recently ran across this unusual passenger lounge design completed by SHH Architects in Biggin Hill Airport, London (for private aviation group Rizon Jet). The project was developed on two levels and has a surface of 478 square meters (first floor), plus an attic space of 186 square meters. The customer’s brief implied a 6-star hotel lobby with a comfortable lounge feel: “The idea was to create a space where people want to spend time,” asserted architect Guy Matheson. This was achieved by using a simple and calm color palette, luxurious finishes, a significant amount of custom-made furniture, and a strong emphasis on comfort and convenience. The main space is a dramatic double-height volume, which is divided into two rooms with different treatments and variations in the levels of privacy so that customers can easily find an enjoyable space while waiting for their air fare.  [Photo credits: Andy Spain Photography]
