COLECCIÓN ALEXANDRA U.K. has participated in the refurbishment of the VIP suites at London’s Heathrow Airport

Luxury VIP airport services got a Spanish touch at London’Heathrow, as COLECCIÓN ALEXANDRA, through its  U.K. distributor, has been called to participate in the design and refurbishment of the Royal & V.I.P. suites of Terminal 4 and 5. Now, celebrities, heads of state and blue chip bosses can avoid paparazzi or the stress of travelling while experiencing ultimate comfort and Spain’s excellence in interior décor… Have a look!

Previously reserved for royalty, heads of state and visiting diplomats, the VIP service, labeled Heathrow by Invitation, has been extended to a limited number of premier class travelers each year.

3D project T5 Windsor Suites at Heathrow Airport

In order to offer the best luxury airport experience to discerning travelers, three leading design practices – Studio Harrods, Colección Alexandra and interior designer Katharine Pooley – have been asked to present a project of refurbishment of the new Royal suites. But in the end the one chosen was that of the Spanish brand.

Early on in the design process it was clear that COLECCION ALEXANDRA’s TRAVELER collection would have been an integral component of the VIP lounges’ design. Featuring a refined embossed leather finish, steel details  and leather corner guards, belts and handles, the TRAVELER furniture, trunks, desks and bar cabinets evoke  the atmosphere of former luxury transoceanic travels while creating a feeling of utmost opulence in contemporary ambiences.

An icon of the brand and a “classic of the XXI century”, as many people define it, the unique ALEXANDRA bar cabinet has been chosen as the key item of the largest suites.  Thanks to its stunning carved motifs, fine lacquer finish and silver handles, it makes a glamorous statement adding elegance and charm.

Bespoke table of the COMPASS collection have been supplied in made-to-measure sizes and finishes. Sofas have been specifically designed to bring comfort and maximize the relaxing experience of passengers.

A timeless, sophisticated feel have been achieved by combining cutting edge contemporary pieces with beautiful traditional armchairs, such as the fine VALENTINA or the EMILI armchair.

The artworks, a collection conceived  by Jacobo Ventura, director of Alexandra Design Studio, celebrate contemporary art while giving a sense of place  with the references to London in big canvases.  The earth tones and bold hues, such the deep amethyst, which is the Heathrow signature colour, and the joyful oranges and purples of paintings match perfectly with the embossed leather cushions, table lamps and other accessories.
