IDEA 2014 Shortlist: Virgin Australia Sydney Lounge

August 22, 2014

The Australian Design Review continues the IDEA 2014 Shortlist series with an exceptional public space by Tonkin Zulaikha Greer Architects.

Design Practice: Tonkin Zulaikha Greer Architects
Photography: Brett Boardman

Allowing guests to glide from one space to another, avoiding the clumsiness and confusion of travel, the Sydney Virgin Lounge is conceived as a set of loosely interconnected spaces and forms visually united by the ‘net’ ceiling, which transitions from the formal repeating ‘leaf’ panels, to a seemingly organic pattern that is particularly beautiful at night.

    I was hoping to find a way to order the IDEA hardcover book – as per the 2014 IDEA Awards LIFE SPACES volume I have borrowed off a fellow designer.

    Could you please pass on the link or details on how to order this fantastic design ‘bible’. Thank you.

    Kind regards,

    Interior Designer / Mysteree Designs
