The architectural design for the new MBS airport utilizes daylighting throughout the ‘landside’ portion of the terminal and illuminates the entrances, ticketing, and baggage claim with vertical glazing in continuous roof monitors. Inside, custom linear pendant indirect fixtures blend in with the curved ceiling architecture to create a pleasant, luminous environment. Indirect cove lighting fills in at the roof monitors at night, providing visual comfort for passengers and staff alike. Energy efficiency guided the lighting design throughout the terminal.
The curbside canopy extends the architectural theme beyond the interior space to shelter arriving and departing passengers. At night, suspended indirect HID lighting illuminates the entire canopy as a bright, friendly welcome upon arrival. Structural masts extending above the roof are lighted with small low wattage HID spotlights for a more subtle effect.
