Upgrades to Brisbane Airport Domestic Terminal officially opened
The upgrades to the Brisbane Airport Domestic Terminal were officially opened this week by Federal Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, Anthony Albanese MP.
HASSELL was engaged in 2007 to design the Brisbane Airport Domestic Terminal Expansion providing capacity for pedestrians, cars and services to meet demands projected for 2030. The upgrades include a new nine-storey car park, a common user satellite and a 'skywalk' that connects the car park and domestic terminal.
The A$125m multi-level car park holds 5,300 spaces over nine levels. The design was driven by a strong sustainability agenda and some key initiatives include natural ventilation and lighting, rainwater collection and minimisation of carbon emissions through better traffic design and management.
The A$25m terminal access 'skywalk' connects the new multi-level car park to the existing terminal. It is an elevated walkway which eliminates pedestrian-vehicle conflict and transforms the landside precinct.
The A$30m common user satellite forms part of the Domestic Terminal Expansion and was completed in 2011. The satellite has increased the size and number of passenger gate lounges, in addition to enhancing passenger amenities and increasing the number of aircraft parking bays and links to aircraft.
Artwork plays an important role in the new elements of the airport. The Butterflies is a kinetic artwork display that was designed by HASSELL Associate Louise Pearson. It hangs in the skylights of the new boarding lounge and features almost 100 one metre wide, laser-cut butterflies that have been coloured with brass and bronze patinas.
HASSELL also collaborated with artist Ned Kahn on the Brisbane Airport Domestic Terminal car park. Ned's artwork forms the east facade of the car park and is made from a lightweight, permeable metal screen consisting of 117,643 aluminium panels. The wind flowing across the screen causes the plates to swing, creating a beautiful rippling surface that gives visual form to the wind.
