Avant-Garde Airline Lobbies
The Virgin Atlantic Headquarters Upgrades Their Look to Sleek & Modern

By: Vivian Lau (Star) May 14, 12

It seems Virgin Atlantic is upscaling their look by first revamping their in-plane bar, and now the Virgin Atlantic Headquarters.

The swanky space’s most obvious highlight is an incredibly bold blood-red floor. It is contrasted with blank white walls that sport cartoon murals by Checkland Kindleysides. These murals feature a collection of drawings from different places (the “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign, a woman in a kimono, Big Ben, etc.), which is designed to show the versatile personality of the airline. Interestingly enough, unlike many companies with huge mastheads behind their front desk, the Virgin Atlantic logo seems to be featured very subtly, if at all, in the new lobby.

As far as global HQs come, Virgin Atlantic is setting the bar sky-high.
