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 Bistro’s 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 architect’s late mother, Rosemary Zwick, further add to the ambiance. Rosemary Zwick’s 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.
