Riga Airport

Air Baltic

For this international competition, Scott Brownrigg designed a specialised hub terminal building for Air Baltic at Riga airport, to accommodate 7.2m passengers per year. The terminal building has been conceived as a large span gridshell roof, constructed of locally sourced timber form the forests of Latvia and draws on the traditions and skills of the Latvian workforce. The glazed facade allows for maximum visibility and views over the aircraft, whilst day lighting is provided, over the whole of the public concourses by rooflights and an ‘oculus’, located over the main escalators and stairs.
