Slade Architecture has design the Virgin Atlantic Upper Class lounge at JFK Airport in New York city. The lounge was designed to provide the relaxed luxury that Virgin’s Upper Class passengers expect with a warm and distinctly Uptown Manhattan feel.
The 10,000sf Clubhouse is bounded on two sides full height expansive views over the jetways and virgin aircraft immediately below. In the center of the lounge, the cloud shaped cocktail bar is enclosed by a diaphanous, curving “wall” of stainless steel rods and walnut fins; mediating views from and through the space and creating a series of distinct spaces.
This is the heart of the lounge around and through which guests move in a rhythmic syncopated flow to the many unique amenities that passengers have come to expect from a Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse.
