Gatwick Airport, The Red Lion

The Red Lion is a powerful statement, instantly renowned for its striking interiors like no other. Crowned the best Airport Bar in the world, The Red Lion offers respite for the weary traveller all year round.

Rich in character and ahead of its time The Red Lion is brimming with well thought-out design and features created to accommodate and excite Gatwick airport passengers as they prepare to travel the world.

Following key changes at Gatwick Airport, which saw an interior renovation worth £1 billion pounds over the next 5 years, CTD Architectural tiles were honoured to be involved in this prestigious project.

Style, practicality and durability were paramount when creating the ambience in The Red Lion bar which sees over 40 million passengers walk through its doors every year.

Designed by Architect CT and contracted by Telling Finishes Contractors this large scale project is one we were delighted to have been a part of.

"CTD Architectural Tiles have really developed a niche in airport projects. Whilst the client demands for design and technical provenance need to be met, the operational infrastructure to manage deliveries and supply to a high security environment like an Airport really sets us apart. The award for best Airport Bar in the world was a fantastic moment and a real testament to the entire supply chain team who delivered this project" -John Lannin.

CTD Architectural Tiles supplied a selection of CTD Old Navy tiles specified for the Project which fit the proposed criteria perfectly. 1000 x 150 x 10mm CTD Old Navy ivory, blue and white have all been used throughout the main area of The Red Lion. This exciting tile range is available in a range of colours and effort adds a touch of fun while being sophisticated at the same time.

Wood effect tile ranges are becoming increasingly popular within both commercial and domestic applications making them one of the most current trends of the year.

A sound investment and delightful to look at, the innovative and timeless CTD Old Navy tiles are perfect if your are looking to add a touch of urban luxury to an up and coming project.

CTD Architectural Tiles also provided 150 x 75mm Mahon White wall tiles which have been used on the back bar. This fantastic glazed tile range is both hard-wearing and aesthetically pleasing to the eye – perfect for serving all those passengers.
