Colombian Northeast Airports

Various Locations in Colombia

Zyscovich Architects was contracted by Aeropuertos de Oriente, the Regional Airports Concessionaire, to upgrade six existing airports located in the North East region of Colombia though a series of modernization projects. In addition to dealing with the limitation of renovating terminals that were designed and built more than 15 years ago, the proposal improves substantially the passenger experience and the terminal’s commercial and logistical aspects.

 

With a philosophy of preserving the existing buildings by extracting the best architectural features, Zyscovich Architects developed new façades that have aesthetic relationships to the particular locations and climate conditions. As a result of the contractual requirements between our client and the Colombian government, many of the specific areas had to be increased.

 

Many of these additions are created to enhance security requirements, establish proper protocols for international arrival and departure, develop more efficient and cohesive passenger flows, retrofit baggage systems and bring the buildings up to current accessibility codes and international building codes. The new upgrades to the terminals created are also oriented to reorganize pre-security and post-security commercial concessions and restaurants to improve their functionality and viability.
