Square Footage: 36,000

Airlines for America (A4A) advocates for America’s commercial airlines as models of safety, security, customer service and environmental responsibility. They provide a unique and dispensable network that connects the country and drives the nation’s economy and global competitiveness. Their headquarters in downtown Washington, DC serves as an energized, dynamic, and modern space that captures the “spirit of flight” while reflecting the interests of its member companies. The space includes a large multi-function conference center and an executive suite with boardroom to support the association’s numerous meetings and entertaining functions.

The design is characterized by a timeless palette with bold accents of color, pixelated cloud wall graphics, subtle curving architectural elements, canted gradient glass panels, color-changing LED cove lighting, and a hospitality bar with a curved blue sky ceiling. A4A is modern, fast, and strong association, and their new headquarters space promotes their impact on the airline industry while still maintaining a “Washington” feel.
