Kherson Airport

Budget : €
Area : m2
Location:

The existing building of the airport had structural problems and limitation of expansion due to site restrictions. Our proposal came to accommodate 400 passengers per hour, 4 boarding bridges, 4 luggage belts, 1 International terminal Building and 1 cargo Terminal Building.

With the demolition of the existing building opens a new plan for improving infrastructure (parking facilities, connection with public transport) and connectivity between International and Cargo terminal.

Our design approach aims for 50% increase of usable space, flexible open plan for increase of mobility and spatial arrangement, shed design for maximum span, sustainable design bringing in natural light while increasing vistas for the users, multi-functional roof system incorporating service facilities and Metal frame structure in order to increasing speed of construction developing time and cost benefits all  that in a centerpiece design approach to strengthen airport identity.

CURRENT CONDITION

  • Old building with structural problems
  • Space limitation – no expansion capabilities
  • Constructional limitations due to concrete structure
  • Old building services
  • Cargo building location – no direct connection with the runway
  • Outdated building image

BRIEF CHARACTERISTICS

  • 400 passengers per hour
  • 4 boarding Bridges
