A new luxury airport lounge at Gatwick Airport, Clubrooms Gatwick North, designed in conjunction with No1 Traveller as part of their brand diversification, follows the success of the first Clubrooms at Gatwick South and expands No1’s offering at Gatwick Airport.
The Clubrooms were designed to instill a sense of calm and retreat from the bustle of the International Departures Lounge at Gatwick Airport. Paneled walls, bespoke joinery and luxury finishes tie the scheme together to create a space that feels truly unique in an airport environment.
For this space, we were asked to create a more open-plan Clubrooms lounge, incorporating several new joinery ideas. This gave us the challenge of maintaining the sense of calm and retreat that the Clubrooms offer but in an open-plan space. This was achieved by proposing dividing joinery elements and screens, along with varying finishes to define customer clusters. Service areas were moved front-of-house and developed as an ‘island’ with a full view of the space, allowing the lounge to be serviced and maintained by a minimum number of staff.
“A creative and professional team always willing to go the extra mile to get things done.”
James Firmin, Project Manager No1 Lounges
