Luxury Airline Lounge, Turkey

Extra

Turkish Airlines’ new lounge at Istanbul’s Ataturk International Airport proves that the air travel industry is seriously upping its game when it comes to pre-flight passenger comfort.

Designed by Turkish architecture, interior and product design studio Autoban, the 3,000m2 space – which has the capacity for up to 2,000 daily visitors – is luxuriously decorated in a largely monochrome palette. The aim, according to the designers, is to offer a “contemporary Turkish experience”.

While the aesthetic clearly plays up to a sense of cultural heritage, pushing the boundaries of traditional airport design is also a key aspect. The multifunctional space encompasses a vast selection of amenities better suited to a luxury hotel than an airport, including relaxation rooms, restaurants, a tea garden, a library and even a cinema.

Based on the notion of creating a more intimate inner shell within the sprawling context of the larger building, the lounge offers comfort and warmth, plus a sense of individuality that sets it far apart from the rest of the generic airport space.
