The Brief

Our approach to this design competition focused primarily on developing an airport masterplan to be delivered in four phases increasing the initial capacity of 25 million passengers per annum to 100 million passengers per annum.


Our design for the form and structure is inspired by the national landscape as well as local culture, traditions and vernacular construction. This has created a distinctive and unique architectural response. Undulating ribbons of the roof maximise natural daylight penetration into the terminal enhancing the wellbeing of staff and passengers. The layout of the International departure Lounge references local natural features whilst helping to create intuitive way finding through the space.


We have expressed the soffits as a universal presence floating above subtly gridded facades and a network of finely detailed columns. By incorporating a lattice style glazing support system we have created a neutral but well-modulated grid that provides a finely detailed backdrop to the outside world. Light and shade and night and day will change the ambience and mood within the building.
