LONDON CITY AIRPORT2019-06-14T11:53:11+00:00

In partnership with London City Airport, we have presented a modern design vision for the £500m transformation of the customer experience at London’s most central airport.

For this project, we provided both the planning for the commercial areas and the interior design across the whole airport. Our designs of the interior spaces include expressions for the new Check In zone, Security, Departures Lounge, Baggage Claim, dedicated Arrivals area and gate lounges.

The central challenge for us was to develop an original concept that celebrated 21st-century London and the airport’s crucial role in the city’s economy. We did this by creating an outstanding and distinctive passenger experience blended with a Sense of Place that is unique to London City.

Innovative digital elements are pivotal in the interior design, an emphasis reflected by the airport’s plans to introduce the world’s first digital control tower. Large format digital screens across the airport share stories from the city, while iconic furniture and lighting from London’s top designers add personality and a premium touch to the lounges.

The new terminal (51,000 sq. m) will launch in 2022, blending dynamic style with enhanced facilities, space and choice for passengers. This will include new shops, restaurants and bars as part of an enriched passenger experience across the whole terminal.

Sense of Place

At its heart, the design theme blends the vibrant, modern personality of London City Airport with contemporary stories of London and the airport’s unique position on the River Thames.

The interior colour palette adopts muted blues, greens and greys inspired by the colours of London’s bridges and the river itself.

“The Thames is the oldest and single most influential element in London’s amazing history and we made the river a central theme of the design. In some ways, the airport has taken on the river’s historic role as the city’s main conduit and we expressed this through an aesthetic that is distinctly modern but integrates elements of the area’s past and its beauty, both natural and man made.”
