Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse by Slade Architecture

The Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse at the JFK International Airport in New York was designed by the practice of Slade Architecture in 2012 and it isn’t the first collaboration between the two firms since the same designers created the Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse at the Newark Liberty Airport which we covered here.

The project offers a luxurious lounge which reminds the clients of the “Uptown” Manhattan glamour with expansive views of the jet ways and the Virgin Atlantic aircraft standing below. The Clubhouse spreads over a surface of 10000 square feet and it provides a view of the TWA terminal with the lounge having a design that is inspired by the 1950s.

The central element in the design is the cloud-like sculpture which encloses the cocktail bar and some of the seats being enclosed by stainless steel rods and rotating walnut fins which mediate the views inside and thus separates the space into several areas.

The furniture was designed by Slade Architecture as well and the interior of the cloud has two light features with a field of 2000 gold powder-coated cylinders hanging at different levels to create an amazing effect. The clubhouse acts as a private members club, a boutique hotel lobby, a restaurant service and a chic bar introducing the first overseas spa and hair salon in any US business class lounge.
