Krakow Airport Facade in Form of a Glass Prism

Krakow Airport, Poland

By flying to Krakow, customers are now set to enjoy an even higher level of service thanks to its new passenger terminal building opened in 2016. With 55 000 square meters of facilities, the Airport is now capable of serving 8 million passengers annually.

Designed by APA Czech Dulinski Wrobel Architects, the idea was to make the new terminal front a recognizable sign identifying Krakow Airport. Thus, they decided to build the facade in the form of a glass prism with significantly tilted front, additionally covered with a copper rooftop. The design of the building allows adding, not only a higher dynamic and expression to the Airport, but also rational, functional and technical solutions for the sunlit facade. Moreover, the use of greenish prepatinated copper in the facade was meant to emphasize the effect of architectural identification.

Impressive architectural projects for Kraków Airport that will further improve the standard of the services offered to the passengers, and enable to answer the new airport premises.
