“We drew on our experience in aviation, hospitality and retail to create a transformational journey for the traveller and rejuvenate one of the great North American airports.”
Woods Bagot partnered with HKS to develop a design proposal for Terminal 1 at San Francisco International Airport. The design concept, Air Pavillion, is characterized by the building’s transparency and the ease of flow of travellers with intuitive wayfinding carefully crafted into the interior architecture. From curbside to airside, continuity of expression and experience is ubiquitous in the design.
We achieved this by freeing space, floor area and volume, along with technology to liberate the guest journey. Continuity of experience, use of the vertical, high-tech high-touch and sense of place formed the underlying principles of the concept.
“Woods Bagot ensured our project was globally benchmarked by mobilising the best people, research and ideas to collaborate with us and deliver an outstanding result.”
