American Airlines to re-design Admirals Club Lounges in the US

American Airlines has announced that it is re-designing its Admirals Club Lounges across the United States to “take the ability to relax and unwind during travel to the next level”.

Chicago-based DMAC Architecture and Interiors will created “a unique vision” for American. When passengers step inside, they will be welcomed by signature brand elements and references from local landscapes and landmarks that tell the story of each city. The airline says that wellness will uniquely shine through selective design elements that set a tone of calm and familiarity. Sustainability is also built into the new design in intentional ways, such as branded elements made of renewable American walnut in every lounge.

The new Admirals Club interior design is inspired by our customers, who tell us that their favorite aspect of visiting our lounges is feeling like they’re ‘coming home. This design is the culmination of a partnership between American and an award-winning architectural firm well known for their designs in the hospitality space. Each element was thoughtfully developed to create an environment of calm, with natural woods and open spaces, so our customers can relax and feel their best as they prepare for their flight.
