About this title


Airport Interiors provides essential background into the development of the airport business and the design of its interior spaces, whether it is through the masterplanning of circulation spaces or interior finishes. The book explains how the global airport market developed and why; who the main architectural influences are; and how interiors have made a commercial difference to how airports are regarded by their operators. The book also explains the financial effects of post 9/11 on today’s airports in the USA, Europe and the Far East, and why airport operators are looking to the internal spaces as their greatest business asset. Lusciously illustrated Airport Interiors is highly attractive to anyone interested in design.

From the Back Cover:

In the last decade, a great deal of excitement has been generatedaround the architecture of contemporary airports. It is, however,the inside rather than the outside of airport terminals that haveundergone the most substantial design revolution. With increasedsecurity, passengers spend an increasing amount of time in airportsairside awaiting flights. Airport operators have capitalised onthis captive audience, becoming increasingly sophisticated in theirprovision of facilities, as suppliers of much more than essentialamenities and mini shopping malls. Airlines also seek to expresstheir competitive advantage through their lounges and adjacentspaces; and retailers and food and beverage providers are producingattractive, often localised spaces for visitors. The operators arekeen to differentiate the quality of their terminals whether it isthrough pitching at a luxury goods market, with top name brands, orendowing their interior spaces with a unique sense of place. Thisbook is not only one of the first titles to focus onairports’ interior design, but also to realise for both adesign and business readership the financial and strategicimportance of airport interior design.

Airport Interiors features exemplary case studies fromall over the world, including: the Malaysian luxury-goods retailerValiram; duty-free retail in Bangkok’s Suvarnbhumi Airport;the UK restaurant chain Giraffe; leading lounge concepts fromVirgin Atlantic; and the innovative airport retail outlets ofChinese brand Shanghai Tang. While providing designers with aunique understanding of business needs, the book also highlights tooperators and retailers how high the design bar is set in thiscompetitive field.
