Waiting in Luxury

Los Angeles International Airport Star Alliance Lounge
Los Angeles, California, USA

“Airlines realize wisely that lounges are also a critical part of the brand experience.”

Henry Harteveldt
Principal Travel Analyst, Forrester Research
New York Times

The Star Alliance Lounge, located on the fifth floor of Tom Bradley International Terminal at Los Angeles International Airport, offers 260 seats, VIP lounges, plasma screen televisions, spa facilities and full food and beverage service.

HOK’s design evokes a feeling of intimacy and privacy without creating a series of small, crowded rooms. An open space flows smoothly from one area to the next, with spaces divided by walnut screens and stainless steel mesh partitions instead of dry wall. The design incorporates sliding, brushed-glass doors in the VIP lounges.
