With more than 60 years of tradition in the market, TAM Executive Aviation stands out as a leader in the sale of executive aircraft and boasts the largest maintenance service complex in Latin America. In this context, the recently inaugurated VIP Lounge, whose project was carefully designed and executed by Zénite Arquitetura & Construção, under the leadership of partner Giselle Benedetti, reflects the company's commitment to providing high standard experiences and offering a new level of comfort and sophistication to its clients.

The design was guided by an open-space approach, with emphasis on the muxarabi panels as dividing architectural elements, which create a feeling of spaciousness and luminosity. Inspired by the best international VIP lounges, the project stands out for its elegant and contemporary design, providing a welcoming and versatile environment, ready to meet the needs of business and leisure travelers.

With a total area of 310 m², the environment includes five waiting lounges, a café, areas for private meetings and an area dedicated to families, recognizing the importance of family accompaniment on corporate trips. The predominant materials included quality joinery, comfortable furniture, adequate lighting and integrated landscaping. The strategic use of Michelangelo Nuvuolato marble in the reception and pantry counters, and the creative application of joinery in various elements, adds sophistication not only for its aesthetics, but also for its functionality and comfort.

The lighting design, meticulously planned to create a welcoming atmosphere, and the carefully thought-out details, such as the muxarabi panels and comfortable furniture, complete the exceptional experience offered by the new TAM Executive Lounge.

The challenges faced included dealing with an old building without accurate architectural plans, requiring detailed prospecting and structural interventions. However, the team successfully overcame these obstacles, delivering the work within 45 days and on budget.

One of the project's differentials was the creation of an area dedicated to the memories of Comandante Rolim, the company's founder, highlighting historical objects and artifacts that reflect TAM's essence and legacy. In addition, the project incorporated technological solutions, such as automation for scheduling meeting rooms and customized lighting systems, demonstrating a commitment to modernity and operational efficiency.
