Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse at LAX

Los Angeles, CA

The Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse at the Los Angeles International Airport’s Terminal 2 recalls LA’s flowing surf and mountain backdrops through smooth curves and sculpted surfaces. A Corian and copper flow wall leads into the main lounge and cuts diagonally through the space. The sinuous flow wall defines a distinct variety of spaces within the triangular-shaped lounge. GMS provided structural engineering design for this 4,000 SF renovation including interior features and seismic restraint structures for new mechanical systems.
