‘Hyperlapse’ Airport Lounge a proposed annexe for the International Airport hub at Heathrow in London designed with the key focus of tackling the issue of jet-lag associated with International travel. Farokh Damania’s design focuses upon creating an entirely unique experience where passengers can enjoy time in spaces that will help to re-calibrate their internal clocks. The design is layered into three levels each simulating a time zone that reflects their final destination. Each layer provides activities that reflect this time zone with daytime Parkland at the top level, an evening street scene in the middle and night time luxury hotel environment at the bottom. This final level is set below ground to help manage day lighting issues. By creating these spaces Farokh believes passengers can arrive refreshed and connected with their final destination’s time zone. The Airport Lounge building captures a sense of time through the development of three experiential levels.
