the turkish airlines CIP lounge at atatürk airport in istanbul is spread over an expansive 3000m2, serving approximately
2000 passengers each day. located within the international departures hall, interior design has been conceived by autoban
and is comprised of a structural feature which acts as a secondary shell within the main core of the space.
referencing the traditional arcade system, the plain domed white archways divide the space while at the same time maintaining
open views to other areas which include resting rooms, library, movie theatre, restaurant, tea garden,
the overall spatial organization giving guests the sense of discovery as they move through the various programs.
accenting the white backdrop are black channels located at the merging points of the modules which have been developed
to wire the mechanical and electrical systems throughout while also offering visual balance.
