Hong Kong, 2016

A new global concept for Cathay Pacific’s airline lounges, that both expresses the brand’s values and addresses the needs of the modern traveller. The flagship, The Pier Business Class Lounge, in Cathay Pacific's home hub of Hong Kong, occupies 3306 square metres with seating for 550 travellers, and is now the largest in Cathay Pacific's worldwide network. In this high-traffic public space, our concept was to remove any institutional feeling and instead to make places that are comfortable, friction-free, a joy to spend time in and easy to operate. This includes the signature Noodle bar offering healthy and fresh, fast food, a beautiful bar, a tea house, fantastic showers, natural materials and beautiful, practical furniture.
