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
