Creating a haven for travellers
August 19, 2020.
Among the nominees for the 2020 Property Council New Zealand / Rider Levett Bucknall Property Industry Awards is the Air New Zealand Regional Lounge at Auckland Airport.
Rider Levett Bucknall (RLB) provided commercial certainty to Air New Zealand led by Richard Anderson.
The innovative design seamlessly integrates an undercover valet drop-off zone and access to the regional departure gates.
Catering for up to 265 customers, the lounge offers expansive views of the adjacent gates, runway and aircraft, a bar and barista, along with refreshment zones, business lounge and quiet area for Air New Zealand’s eligible customers.
Key considerations in the design and construction of the building were the maximisation of the 1,930-square-metre site from a feasibility perspective, and the efficiency of the consenting process to ensure a swift delivery.
The Air New Zealand Regional Lounge at Auckland Airport is designed by Gensler and Eclipse Architecture.
