The Lounge is actually a mini Terminal with special facilities for departure and arrival of VVIPs to be used by, important ministers and Heads of State, dignitaries like the President and Prime Minister of India, the Chief Minister of the State.
The VVIP section consists of the main Ceremonial Lounge, a large board room, waiting rooms and a bedroom suite, apart from toilets and a pantry.
The brief was to make this Lounge distinctly different from the Interiors of Terminal One, which are sleek and very modern. The design is “Contemporary Classic”, in the use of its forms, details, materials, furniture and art. Dark wood veneer and “travertine” marble wall cladding is used extensively, interspersed with mirror on the walls and ceiling, to lend the spaces a rich look. Leather sofas, custom designed furniture, decorative side lamps enhance the look. The art is a mixture of “Indian miniature” copies and limited edition prints of Indian masters of contemporary art. The skylight in the Reception lounge and large glass windows allow a lot of natural light, making waiting and working in the Lounge a cheerful experience.
