Virgin Atlantic Airport Clubhouse

The Clubhouse is a relaxed luxury space with a rich and distinctly mod motif, bounded on two sides by full height expansive views over the jet ways.

The owners of Virgin Atlantic were in need of a lounge they considered an experience that would give their passengers a first class feel at JFK, while they wait for their flight.

The lounge provides space for the airline’s first class passengers and features a variety of seating and dining areas, all surrounded by perforated aluminum walls. The project included running MEP’s through occupied tenant space, baggage area and terminal seating. Many different ceiling elevations were constructed to go along with ceiling fixtures that had 6” cans at many different elevations, The project has received many awards in both the hospitality and airport design categories.

The Clubhouse functions as a private members club, with a boutique lobby, restaurant service and bar as it also introduces Virgin Atlantic’s first overseas spa and the first hair salon in any US business class lounge. The Club includes a multitude of areas that cater to the varying needs of the passengers. A quiet lounge, a talking lounge and a cocktail lounge are some of the amenities in Virgin Atlantic’s renovated Clubhouse.
