Luxury begins on the ground for air travellers in Munich. First-class Lufthansa passengers have the opportunity to take a break in a specially designed airport lounge. In this 30 meter high glass hall, you'll find everything you need before and after a flight, including a gourmet restaurant, a comfortable bar area, a work and relaxation room, a cigar lounge and a private bathing area.

 

The exclusive design is not only reflected in the interior, but in the smallest details too. In the wellness and bathing area, Siniat’s cement-bound dry building panel, Hydropanel, impresses with its high quality performance. Hydropanel is impact, moisture and mould resistant and provides noise protection, whilst meeting the highest fire protection requirements.

Installation phase

The construction of the non-load-bearing walls in the interior of the bath was made possible by using Hydropanel, Siniat’s time-saving dry-building solution. Four units provide a private atmosphere with showers, baths and a jacuzzi and are characterised by a material quality that is in stark contrast to the usual functional design at airports. Materials like greywacke and oakwood alternate with white marble and contrast against the stainless steel and glass. Made-to-measure wash basins with fittings from Antonio Cit-terio complete the interior. The high quality of the execution is reflected in both the room equipment and its basic construction.

The wall construction has been built in such a way that the finished partitions can withstand external loads and dead weight.

Depending on the height of the wall, slender wall cross-sections of 68 mm or more are possible.

Resistant to mildew and bacteria decay, water and moisture resistant according to DIN EN 492, Hydropanel is ideally suited for wall constructions in wet areas. With its high bulk density, it also guarantees good soundproofing properties, an important prerequisite to avoid noise disturbance in the resting rooms. A further advantage of the material is the high impact resistance, which ensures longevity. A huge advantage in heavily frequented public areas.

Results

Local impact

At over 860 square meters, the passengers in Terminal 2 are invited to relax in a specially designed lounge for them. Deceleration instead of acceleration is the philosophy here. The first-class area embodies the refined ambience of a luxury hotel and creates a pleasant microcosm in the midst of a hectic airport.
