Sleek spaces that elevate the travel experience.


American Airlines launched an expansive passenger lounge modernization program, applying new design guidelines at airports around the globe. We provided architecture and engineering services for a complete renovation of their Admirals Club and Flagship Lounge at Chicago O’Hare Airport’s Terminal 3 (their largest collective lounge space in the U.S.).

Tailoring the Solution

A refuge for passengers.

The lounges provide passengers with a refuge from the public concourse areas and the constant, noisy barrage of terminal happenings. Our design of the Admirals Club offers an atmosphere that is refreshing, flexible, open, and intended for shorter dwell times. The Flagship Lounge, geared towards elite patrons, is a more intimate space with a higher end, boutique feel.

The overall design guidelines provide for flowing lines, iconic images, and juxtaposition of wood and metal. The spaces also feature custom-made furniture pieces, including communal tables and high-back chairs.

Supporting What Matters

An integrated team effort.

Using Integrated Project Delivery, we created a new dynamic for client collaboration that strengthened project success. Both lounges were completed on time and under budget.
