The Royal Suite, T5

Katharine Pooley has completed 3 suites at Heathrow in addition to this one, but this is arguably the most prestigious commission.  The brief was to create an inviting and luxurious space for VIP guests to the Royal Suite at Heathrow Terminal 5.  By using a mixture of natural materials: slate wallcovering, grasscloth wallpaper, cotton velvets and silks, the space is tactile as well as rich, and has turned a rectangular-shaped thoroughfare into a welcoming and dynamic space.
