RFR work on this project consists in the technical design of the facades for the whole project, from sketch design to construction achievement as well as the skylights.
The new extension project facades reflect the state of the art in architectural & technical modern airport conception. The city side large facade is mainly facing North and it is mostly made of glass in order to get a maximum amount of natural light shining through in the airport hall. In summer, the harmful solar inputs are reduced by using high performance glass with a solar protective layer. The side facades, and the runway façade have a smaller surface. The overhanging roof and the horizontal shading blades protects them by creating a mask effect.
