International Travel Made Easier
Philadelphia Airport is about to offer the international
traveler the luxury and comfort of a downtown bistro and an upscale
lounge bar. The grand openings of the Cibo Bistro & Wine Bar and
the Shades of Blue Lounge at Terminal 1 are scheduled for May. These
exciting designs of Ztecture, PC and its principal Stephen Zwick have
brought drama and fun to this new international terminal.
In Cibo, Mr. Zwick has used neon towers and up lights to illuminate the 20
foot tall back bar. Pour per glass wine dispensers and beer displays gives
the visitor an opportunity to view the Bistros entire selection easily
from the 45 foot long under lit onyx bar. Directly across from the bar is what
Mr. Zwick refers to as a Drama Kitchen. Colorful backlit panels
of encapsulated spices form an archway around this open drama kitchen give
the customer the feel of being a part of the food preparation.
In the Shades of Blue Lounge, travelers can sit back in overstuff sofas, while
listening to the sounds of jazz. The interior finishes, as the name suggests,
are various shades of blue. Mural reproductions of jazz themed artwork by the
architects late mother, Rosemary Zwick, further add to the ambiance.
Rosemary Zwicks art has been in major museums like the Art Institute
of Chicago, the Smithsonian, the Brooklyn Museum, the San Francisco Museum
of Art amongst many others.
Creating exciting places where travelers can escape from the airport without
having to leave the airport says Stephen Zwick is what drives his design.
These are not to be missed locations.
