Briefed to leave a lasting impression to passengers passing through the International departure lounge, Giant created the ‘McLounge’ at Sydney Airport. A captive audience in no rush to leave gives McDonald’s the opportunity to create a very different environment to the average store. Warm, natural finishes with lots of texture and the introduction of graphic ‘greenery’ softens the hardness of the concrete runway it opens out onto. The centrally positioned McCafe breaks up the expanse of the space, three times the size of an average McDonald’s. The oversize pendants help lower the eyeline down to a manageable scale.

The Single Curve bar stool by Nendo is a refined adaption of Japanese minimalism cleverly fusing the traditional style of the Gebruder Thonet Vienna GmbH.
