“Tear up the blueprints.” ADAC’s challenge is simple to state – design the best airport terminal in the world.
We rose to the challenge by creating a retail destination to complement ADAC’s astonishing ambition for Midfield – a terminal that blends scale with vision, originality and vibrancy.
Designed to handle 33million passengers the terminal incorporates a dramatic 54m high roof supported by curved organic structural elements. The central departures lounge has over 20,000 sq m commercial space that will host an unrivalled range of luxury stores and a range of places to eat and drink – from plush restaurants to cool and contemporary juice bars.
With a terminal of such scale, it was crucial to create specialist areas with a defined mix and character, creating ‘worlds’ for visitors to discover and explore, such as Beauty, Luxury, Fashion and Technology, each creating its own stories to share with Midfield’s guests.
Alongside the main departure lounge, the commercial space has also been planned for all other landside and airside areas of the terminal.
