A theatrical articulation of the best of India.
Expressing the energy and culture of India, this dramatic new terminal at the country’s second-largest airport has been designed to handle up to 40 million passengers, with over 20,000 sqm of commercial space located across two floors.
Sharing a common check-in hall, passengers then split between domestic and international departures. Domestic passengers drop down a level before proceeding through the commercial area to their gates. International passengers continue at the same level, experiencing a walk-through flagship duty free store on their way to the departure lounge and piers.
On completing the planning for the commercial space throughout the terminal, we were appointed to design the environment for both departure lounges along with South West Pier. In response to a client passionate to create a terminal with a deep ‘Sense of Place’, we evolved a rich design vocabulary to express the unique character of each departure lounge. This vocabulary is deeply influenced by the craft and design heritage of this extraordinary subcontinent.
