51st & Green Airport Lounge Dublin Airport Client: Dublin Airport Authority Services: Fit out
The construction of a new 5 star lounge is underway at Pier 400 in Terminal 2 in Dublin Airport. This new Lounge of approximately 1000 sq. m in floor area will cater for westbound passengers who have gone through the immigration and CBP Area and are awaiting their flights to the USA.
Dublin Airport is rapidly developing as a hub airport facilitating travel between the East and the States, and the new Lounge will provide an interesting stop-off point for long-haul passengers. The concept of the Lounge is based on a central rest and recuperation area within a zone of light following a transitory walk via a curving approach- and the careful selection of materials and lighting assists in the Lounge looking completely different to anywhere else in the Airport.
MCA have had an interesting challenge in balancing the busy and often noisy reality of planes boarding, taking off and landing outside the windows, with creating a relaxing and rejuvenating 5 star setting.The Lounge is uniquely the closest lounge to a runway globally.
