Grimshaw to Design World’s Largest Terminal in Istanbul

Grimshaw to Design World’s Largest Terminal in Istanbul

Following a competitive interview process Grimshaw, in partnership with Nordic Office of Architecture, has been appointed by the Turkish consortium of Cengiz, Mapa, Limak, Kolin and Kalyon to design the terminal complex for Istanbul New Airport.

Located on the Black Sea coast, some 35km outside of Istanbul, the ambitious six-runway development, masterplanned by Arup, will be delivered in four phases. The first phase will open in 2019 and aims to serve 90 million passengers per year. This will increase to 150 million passengers per annum once fully complete. The new airport will include the world’s largest airport terminal, with a gross floor area close to one million square meters.

Grimshaw is not a stranger to aviation. Aside from their impressive list of airport commissions, including Russia's Pulkovo Airport which is currently being constructed in St. Petersburg, Grimshaw has also offered a masterplanned solution to help London solve their airport capacity problem.
