Comfortable and atmospheric lounging
The Rublev Lounge on Sheremetyevo Airport Moscow was designed by Dutch design office M+R interior architecture. The designers were inspired by the avant-garde aesthetics of Russian constructivism and the architecture of Kievan Rus. One of the project's central themes is church domes - a nod to the legacy of Andrei Rublev, the great Russian painter of Orthodox icons. The interior uses a range of high-quality materials: marble, steel and copper. Some of the decor elements are made of natural wood and glass. The lounge's lighting concept is of particular interest: the colour temperature and the intensity of the lights change from day to night to create a warm an inviting atmosphere. The interior's central elements are the onion-shaped seating areas made of wood, with subtle lighting coming from the ceiling. The designers applied some of the best practices from the premium hospitality sector in this project. The space is divided into several dedicated areas, allowing guests to relax and make good use of their time at the airport. Visitors can enjoy a panoramic view of the airfield from the comfortable sunbed-style chairs in the lounge area. Business travellers also have access to a meeting room for 10 people. The space ahs a dedicated room for children. The restaurant area offers a European cuisine buffet, which is the longest in all business lounges in the world. Visitors can use the bar on the second floor or relax in one of the comfortable hotel-syle rooms. The design of the Rublev Lounge was awarded with several awards, including the German Design Award 2020 and the A'design silver award 2019.
