Inspired by Mikhail Lermontov's novel, we designed a new terminal that organically fits into the surrounding landscape. We wanted to create a significant place that will welcome passengers before they would begin their personal journey.
The Design of this airport was inspired by the landscape of the Caucasus and the novel A Hero of Our Time, by Mikhail Lermontov. The dramatic curving of the roof for the building imitates the Caucasus mountains and the paper scrolls the novel is illustrated within. Roof lights are used to refer to lines in the book and allow daylight to penetrate the furthest reaches of the building.
Warm natural colors are used in the buildings interior materials palette and exposed beams to complement the bronze-colored roof.
Glazed panels are used in the buildings façade. The use of the Glazing in the buildings façade helps provide spectacular views to the vast surrounding landscape.
