Top Amenities Meet Regional Flair in This Bahrain Airport
Talk about two for one. The refined New York firm spearheaded by Interior Design Hall of Fame member Alexandra Champalimaud was invited by Australian travel specialist firm Tony Masters Design to partner on an airport lounge competition entry. The 29,000-square-foot, 10-room Pearl Lounge in the new billion-dollar Bahrain International Airport terminal “is different in that it’s not branded to a particular airline, but rather to the country,” Champalimaud Design CEO Ed Bakos says. “We applied traditional concepts of Arabic hospitality to a series of intimate spaces including a café, a bar, and an à la carte restaurant.” The amenities of a five-star hotel dovetail with nuances of regional hospitality: Rosewood and gold-plated details pair with cozy wingback chairs, while snakelike sofas emulate traditional majlis seating areas, helping to facilitate a natural flow of foot traffic. Of course, all 450 seats include smartphone charging ports.
