The concept behind the development of the lounges was to reintroduce some of the key DNA from Sydney lounge but with a new selection of materials appropriate for the locality of Melbourne and American express look and feel.

Inside The American Express Lounge, relax, recharge and reboot with a host of services and amenities designed to anticipate travelers’ needs. The design concept begins with three key elements:

– Focus on the “wellness” for travelers
– “Locally” inspired architecture
– Joy of discovery

These three concepts are translated into spaces where passengers can relax via the engagement of human senses in spaces which intersect the concept of the lounge lifestyle and the ideal contemporary luxury residence and home away from home. Emphasis on local landmarks and travel related inspiration images integrate into the overall lounge architecture providing a sense of joy and discovery. Carefully designed pockets of greenery throughout the lounge give a soft and relaxing overall feel.

Extensive design thought was applied to furniture shapes and design for this lounge. We endeavored to craft spaces to create a “home away from home” living room feel for maximum comfort and relaxation.

Passengers can enjoy a wide variety of seating configuration. Special attentions to growing needs of passengers include a new concept of charging pods available for use.
