You can count on most airport terminals to be outfitted in heinous, boldly geometric carpet, dusty plastic plants and the most uncomfortably, un-ergonomic plastic chairs known to man. Not the Turkish Airlines CIP lounge. Designed by Autoban and Situated in Istanbul’s Ataturk Airport the lounge has a capacity of 2000. The concept was cemented in the idea of creating a smaller shell within the larger shell of the airport. Most notable, however, are the beautifully striking curves of the architecture that separate the distinct areas that make up the lounge. Resting rooms, restaurant, tea garden, library and a movie theater are incased in separate spherical pods just waiting to be discovered!
