Melbourne Airport Southern Precinct design unveiled
Melbourne Airport recently unveiled the HASSELL design for the planned development of the airport Southern Precinct at their annual stakeholder event. A team from the Melbourne and Sydney HASSELL studios has been working closely with the airport to plan the precinct and future landside movement of vehicles and people that will help realise the airport's vision of doubling passenger numbers in the next twenty years.
The first stage of the development comprises a new domestic terminal and pier, a new forecourt and multi-level transport ground interchange including a car park, all being designed by HASSELL. The scheme, designed to accommodate domestic airlines, looks to substantially improve the passenger experience.
The design by HASSELL for the new Terminal 4 will deliver an efficient operational mode and greatly enhanced retail opportunities. In addition, it offers further value by considering modular expansion and future integration with Terminal 3, therefore maximising all opportunities for shared security, check-in and baggage facilities and airside retail.
The terminal engages with the landscaped forecourt and the airfield whilst being commercially and amenity focused to align with the airport's business model. As such, this terminal is one of a new generation of hybrid facilities that is a platform for a variety of airline business models as well as providing an improved experience and amenity for passengers.
