With the goal of breaking the usual ‘airport mould’ and creating a distinct space that differentiated Brisbane Airport from all others, the redevelopment has recieved both international and national accolades.
Elements of the redevelopment included:
- A new themed departures lounge, incorporating a sense of place that is uniquely Brisbane
- New walk through Duty Free stores for both departures and arrivals
- New specialty retail and food and beverage outlets offering the best of local produce and products
- Improved way finding for passengers and unrivalled views of aviation activity on the tarmac.
Every part of the project was carefully designed to leverage the unique character of Brisbane, with a specific focus on Queensland’s enviable outdoor lifestyle and creating an environment that encapsulated the personality of Brisbane and Queensland.
Queensland artists were also selected to provide key pieces within the redevelopment and local materials were used for a variety of aspects to support Queensland and Australian suppliers.
The stunning fit out features locally sourced stone, timbers, fittings and plants which define dedicated dwell, work and relaxation areas.
