The Kangaroo Island Air Terminal is more than a regional air transport hub, it is a unique world-class cultural venue. More than a landmark, image or icon, it is the product and instigator of dialogue – interaction and exchange between people, with the terminal and its breathtaking natural setting. Located off mainland South Australia, Kangaroo Island is a secluded island, a place of extremes where powerful forces shape the remote coastline and nature balances precariously. It is a unique destination and the architectural response is appropriately un-conventional, distinctive and deeply connected to place. Conventional terminal planning principles were transcended to enhance the terminals function and create a cultural centre - defined by a central hub space at the nexus of a third diagonal pier leg - enabling the terminal to simultaneously host regional passenger transport, kitchen, bar, art gallery, and function spaces.
