A design team comprising Nordic Office of Architecture, Grimshaw Architects, and Haptic Architects has unveiled design details of the terminal complex at the new Istanbul Airport. Evoking the city’s architectural heritage, a layered slatted roof diffuses daylight to reveal a range of blue hues and a discrete geometric pattern.



In addition to enhancing the terminal’s horizontal profile, the vaulted ceilings will give passengers a strong sense of direction, while the natural light streaming through highlights check-in, security, passport control, and retail outlets.



Master planned by Arup, the airport will open in four phases, with the first one ready in 2018. Terminal 1 is slated to be the world’s largest airport terminal under one roof at nearly 11 million square feet.
