KAAN Architecten to design Schiphol Airport’s new terminal
Amsterdam Airport Schiphol has selected the design of Netherlands-based architectural firm KAAN Architecten for the development of its new terminal.
The company has been chosen in collaboration with ABT, Estudio Lamela and Ineco to renovate the airport's existing terminal, allowing Schiphol to maintain its one-terminal concept.
Scheduled to open in 2023, the terminal will have the capacity to handle 14 million more passengers each year.
Amsterdam Airport Schiphol CEO Jos Nijhuis said: “This design suits the Schiphol DNA. That was the main reason why the jury decided to choose this design.
“The design solution contributes to excellent processing. It provides optimal support to passengers, contributes to our sustainability ambitions and is future-proof.
"We are looking forward to welcoming airlines and passengers in the new terminal and adjacent new pier.”
The new facility will adjoin Departure Hall 1 and Arrival Hall 1 at the airport.
The terminal expansion project is part of Royal Schiphol Group’s capital programme, which is coordinating and managing a wide range of complex, large-scale projects.
In 1993, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol permanently expanded the terminal with new departure and arrival halls.
