Mandalay Airport CIP Lounge

Mandalay Airport CIP Lounge is our first Airport Facility Design project outside of Japan. When we embarked on the Airport’s renovation project in 2014, the CIP Airport Lounge was designated to be added to the list of the Airport’s facility as one of its core amenity. The design brief as conveyed to us was to create a space suitable for traveling executives, but without the excessive pomp and grandeur.

It then falls on us to focus on the overall user experience which is casual yet friendly and inviting to visitors. The design utilizes simple compositions, playing with texture of materials and soft colours, while employing carefully balanced lighting that is pleasing to the eyes. Wood grain materials are selected based on their texture. Armchairs used here are products incorporating soft woven and knitted fabric invoking a sense of craftsmanship. Each and every element incorporated contributes to the spatial ease of use and relaxing atmosphere.

In the staff’s successful drive to renew the old and deteriorating Airport to serve as the gateway into Mandalay, old facilities and systems are replaced and made way for the new; and among the waves of dramatic and positive changes undergone by the Airport, CIP Airport Lounge is one of the notable additions which will facilitate the attraction of new airline companies as well as new visitors and guests into the country.

日本勢初の国外における空港運営事業マンダレー空港プロジェクト。2014年より始められたリノベーションの核となるCIPラウンジの設計を担当した際に、CIPラウンジとしての、決して華美にならないエグゼクティブスペースというバランス感が課題として与えられた。

適度なカジュアル感を感じさせる木目を中心としたシンプルな構成に、柔らかい色使いや、目に優しい光源バランス、手触りにこだわった木肘、クラフト感を感じさせる編み上げのアームチェアなどを組み合わせ、カジュアルさと親しみやすさを基調にしながらも、ユーザーにとっての使いやすさや居心地の良さにフォーカスした空間を目指した。

今、マンダレイの入り口として魅力的な国際空港を作ろうというスタッフの方々の熱意が結実し、過去の老朽化した施設やシステムは一新され、マンダレー空港が劇的な変化を遂げている中で、新CIPラウンジは順調に増加している新規航空会社契約や新規顧客確保を支える一端を担っている。
