Bolshoye Savino, Perm International Airport

Perm Airport’s new terminal provides an iconic gateway to the Perm region. The terminal is 25,000m2 and has been designed to respond to the operational needs and projected growth of the airport.

The external appearance is inspired by the concept of ‘jet streams’ and makes maximum use of natural daylight, creating bright and airy spaces that are both calm and relaxing. The building form is relatively simple and allows for future expansion both internally and externally.

As part of the design process twelve architects developed a series of design options with the client including an alternative facade option ‘the cloud’ formed from ETFE cushions making a memorable impression, particularly when lit at night.
