design et al are excited to announce shortlist success for the Dutch architect firm FG stijl in the International Yacht & Aviation Awards 2015. Located at Amsterdam’s aviation hub Schiphol, SUMMUM The Private Jet Lounge will compete for the First Class Lounge Award.
‘Summum’ – the Dutch word for “summit” is the perfect name for The Netherlands’ most exclusive private jet lounge. Amsterdam-based FG stijl spent six months crafting an interior to reflect the lifestyles of those who use it: combining style and practical functionality at the highest level of luxury.
Situated on the 4th floor of Schipol’s new private jet terminal, the lounge spans 500 square metres. This location offers an expansive vista through wide, landscape-shaped windows across the private jet runways, disembarkation area and helipads.
The entrance corridor is dominated by a backlit honey-coloured onyx wall which is reflected by 6.5 metre mirrors on the opposite wall and offset by black carpet and ceiling. The bleached wenge wooden floor corridor leads to the reception area where a portrait “Xteriors XIII”, by one of Holland’s most famous living artists Désirée Dolron hangs – described as “the Vermeer of the 21st Century.’
The Lounge is divided into meeting rooms and lounge areas, distinctive by their size and function. The catering is provided by Spirit Hosting & Promotions – their partners are behind highly acclaimed Restaurant de Bokkedoorns, (holder of two Michelin stars for over twenty years), who provide food and beverages on a bespoke basis. The result is a sublime dining experience in a unique location.
The colour palette for The Private Jet Lounge features a selection of tones of inspired by nature, that are brought to life by complementary and contrasting touches of warm ochre, burnt orange, emerald green and the ever-stunning metallics bronze, silver and copper. The effect is one of timeless glamour, where comfort is key.
