British Airways First Class Lounge at Philadelphia International Airport
The signature color of British Airways is blue and their first-class service is elite. TLP’s lighting for this First Class Lounge endeavors to clearly imprint both ideas on all who encounter it. The goal was to create a distinctive presence that stands out among the regular retail storefront line of the airport concourse.
TLP made extensive use of blue LEDs to create a recognizable, intriguing and tantalizing glow through the frosted-glass storefront. Inside, the lighting design communicates elegance and relaxation for weary travelers. Although the spaces are contiguous, they provide a variety of experiences for lounge guests. Dimming systems change the mood throughout the day.
