The design project for the United Club and United Global First Lounge at Heathrow Airport’s new Terminal 2 began with a clear focus: to creatively and responsibly deliver distinctive, stylish and state-of-the-art airport lounges”. The architect approached the project as a hospitality assignment, designing a series of spaces that offer customers many opportunities to feel at home while travelling by creating distinct and comfortable spaces.

Using timepieces throughout to represent detail and precision, the lounges are shaped into three zones; the United Club, which includes signature furniture pieces, vintage aviation artwork and sculpted organic installations and private phone booths; Shower Suites, featuring high-end spa-quality shower and restroom facilities; and the Global First Lounge.

The Global First Lounge establishes a new standard for international lounge design by elevating the concept of traveller luxury. The lounge offers private phone booths and a chef-prepared a-la-carte menu, while bronze, stone and eucalyptus wood details are featured throughout.  With unobstructed views of the tarmac, the lounge culminates in a modern English Tea Lounge with a replica Big Ben-style clock and a wine room.
