The Bridge is the sixth Cathay Pacific lounge at Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA), offering an exclusive and relaxing space for Cathay Pacific passengers. The Bridge – a 2,567 square-metre space designed by London-based architectural firm Foster + Partners – is located at Level 5, West Concourse at HKIA, ideally situated for passengers exiting the terminal passenger train near gate 35.

The design intent of The Bridge is that of a residential space, and to this end the new lounge features warm colours, timber flooring and luxurious carpet, with the overall impression reminiscent of a living room environment, with natural sunlight filtering through the floor to ceiling windows.

Black granite and oak slat walls marry with black tiles and oak timber to create a warm and inviting environment. Burnished brass panels and aerofoil louvres, together with bronze walls accentuate the understated elegance in the dining and bar areas, while the use of Corian claddings adds a touch of modern simplicity to the lounge.

James, ALT-254’s Partner, provided the Project Management services for the design and construction of The Bridge fit-out project. The design consulting team included Arup as M&E consultant, Fosters and Partners as the Interior Designers and Isometrixs providing lighting consulting. Yearfull was awarded the Main Contract and Radnor provided the kitchen fabrication and installation
