Malpensa VIP Terminal Building (MXP)

Design and development of a new VIP Terminal Building, titled Milano Malpensa Prime

The new Sea Prime terminal will feature state-of-the-art facilities over 1,400m2 for both passengers and crew. The building has been designed as a single-floor building to offer guests a positive customer experience through freedom and assistance from arrival through to departure. The ultimate objective, shared with the client, is to welcome customers into a state of- the-art building that was in line with some of the world best terminals, by offering a highly functional environment that provides travelers and crew with the opportunity to feel both relaxed and comfortable.

From the lobby, passengers enter the security checkpoint through a glass wall with sliding doors. Located here are also the state authority offices responsible for the control of departing and arriving passengers.

Strategically located at the center of the flows, the authorities will maintain security and easily monitor all movements within the terminal building without creating bottlenecks.

Airside facilities will include a dedicated apron, as well as a newly renovated 5,000m2 hanger adjacent to the terminal to host customers’ executive jets.

Finally, in order to provide a unique and lasting impression on the airport’s landscape, great attention have been given to the view of the building from above. The buildings shape, color and coating materials have been chosen considering the perspective of both the pilots and passengers on board incoming or departing planes.

“The effect we want to convey is that of a compact volume and the presence of the new terminal from both the ground and in flight. The building is covered in panels of painted aluminum sheets with a ‘mother of pearl’ gray to provide a unique glossy and mirroring effect. This also provides a contrast with the dark color of the external covering to give more light to the entrances for welcoming passengers.”
