Designing airports

Whether working with a blank canvas or retrofitting a terminal, we will help you bring a comfortable experience from check-in to gate. Taking passenger satisfaction as our starting point, we create places that make the travel experience easy to enjoy. Our designs combine placemaking with public space furniture to make navigation feel natural, even intuitive. We can direct passenger flow, taking travelers through commercial areas on their way to the gate. Our seamless seating designs can keep groups together, yet allow required distances between individual travelers too.

Airport terminal placemaking

Rethink the airport as a destination

Furniture is a vital aspect of placemaking and can create architectural impact while being attuned to the individual story of a place. Let the airport experience be part of the journey, not only a place for passengers to “pass through.” A place where the experience starts. A place with added value for the passengers. A connection to the world.

Placemaking for passenger satisfaction and revenue

We’re setting new standards to airports by creating including and comfortable waiting areas with tailored, modular solutions that increase passenger satisfaction significantly. A study from ACI shows that an increase of 1% in the global passenger satisfaction mean generates an average growth of 1.5% in non-aeronautical revenue.

Design Tips

Biophilic design in airports for the passenger's wellbeing

Biophilic design uses nature as a co-architect to design our places. It brings that connection into the place and encourages us to understand the importance of natural shapes, materials, colours for our health and wellbeing.

Biophilic design helps the visitors bring the stress level down and enjoy the whole journey, not only the destination.

Make places matter by creating a feeling of a home away from home. A place that visitors will engage with, respect, and return to.
