British Midland: Departure Lounge

The flagship lounge in Terminal 1 Heathrow Airport has been created to showcase the best of British design and offers a quintessentially British environment in which to work, relax, dine and refresh.

The space is divided into informal zones that cater to the varying needs of the international traveller – the emphasis being on providing a sense of comfort and familiarity. Materials and colours are rich and sensual – reinforcing the indulgent, yet welcoming atmosphere.

An informal, but sophisticated British pub environment is created in The Local where customers can unwind around a welcoming leather-buttoned horseshoe shaped bar. The Study offers free Wi-FI, desk seating as well as a boardroom-style table and a quiet library area.
