One Works was appointed to develop a schematic design for a passenger terminal extension capacity to mitigate issues around existing capacity constraints. The proposed extension included an increase in the airport area, from the existing 20,700 m2 to 36,500 m2, as well as interventions that would tackles the airports ambitions of becoming a know “green airport” adopting contemporary concepts of environmental sustainability.
The terminal features a covered tree-lined square on the landside front, which largely enjoys natural light and gathers photovoltaic energy from panels located on its roof. This City Gate area revitalises the existing terminal’s public image, offering a public space accommodating both airport passengers and city residents.
While the project is undergoing the schematic design phase, a series of specific interventions terminated insofar include a new check-in hall, the control gates expansion and a new passenger’s lounge for traveling within Schengen area. One Works coordinated these interventions from the concept design to detailed design and subsequent tender documentation and construction supervision.
