Stanev Potts Architects were asked to consider how the walls in the gates of terminal A might better cater towards the traveler. Starting with the person as the center of our focus we began studying spaces that people go to spend there free time. The airport can be a place of anxiety and stress where one is forced to wait; but why does it have to feel different from the places we seek out to spend time? Cafes, libraries and parks are all just examples of spaces we go to sit.... For the airport our goal was to create an inviting place to wait with sufficient seating and charging.
This simple modular form plays off of the convince of construction and installation, while allowing each gate to be individually considered. Materials were carefully selected to be easily maintained and durable while creating a continuous language throughout terminal A. The project was carefully detailed with custom LED lighting and integrated charging.
