Summary and Conclusion

From the Paper:

"There is a play element as well, which was one of the findings of the Virgin team: passengers like games. So the 'Den' section includes a pool table, retro video games (obviously beloved of middle-aged male passengers who have achieved financial success), plus films, and tv sports coverage, all viewed from extra-deep sofas. The quality of furniture and materials throughout is impressive and well chosen, giving distinct identity to very different parts of the facility, for example the spa facility. This is an unusual interior; aptly contemporary, it doesn't conform to the pattern of dilute modernism of much airport design, but nor does it fall for the antique look so beloved of British hoteliers when it comes to offering luxury services. Richard Branson must be pleased with the increase in passenger numbers the Clubhouse has helped to generate. For us ordinary mortals, we can only hope that the Formula One standards achieved here (with a price tag of [pounds sterling]11m) somehow rub off on the travelling experience for those of us in carriage class"."
