Designed by Autoban, this 300 square meter CIP Lounge recently opened at the Ataturk Airport International Departures in Istanbul, the Turkish Airlines CIP Lounge is a welcoming port for weary travelers. Here's more explanation from the architects:
“The main structure, established by making use of the traditional architectural arcade system, consists of a combination of global forms. These plain spheres create interior combinations by dividing the place into sections, allowing transitions between them.” The shells have different functions – restaurant, tea garden, library, movie theater or rest rooms – and provide a sense of continuation moving through the spaces. Details like the intricate pattern shells and light-pierced black channels hiding electrical systems and mechanic features in the merging points of shells make the whole design display a fresh, bold and welcoming design.
