Located in the domestic / international departures concourse area of the Ottawa airport, the Tulip Lounge includes bar-side and individual seating, lounge areas, and a kitchen with a concealed storage area.

The kitchen includes a multi-compartment sink, dishwasher, ice machine, wine coolers, espresso maker, and POS terminal.

The new space incorporates an existing retail store, open concourse space, and nearby storage area.

An internally illuminated sign box showcases the lounge name. LED lights highlight the etching detail on the top of the railings at the seating area.

Scope of work included:

  • bringing plumbing (water and sanitary) to the new lounge location
  • upgrading the electrical supply from 100 amp service to 200 amp service
  • designing the ventilation, plumbing, sprinklers, lighting, and power within the lounge.
  • fit-up of an adjacent space into offices and food storage, which required a new heat pump for cooling, LED ceiling troffer lighting, and power for the new commercial fridge and freezer
