Airport Architecture worldwide

Over the past 15 years, Detail Design has designed, planned and brought to live a large number of projects at international airports worldwide. Apart from travel retail shops, airport bars and restaurants, we have now also commenced with the creation and realization of airport buildings and making them commercially successful and moreover an exciting experience for passengers. As architects and retail & F&B designers we are able to bring passenger’s requirements and expectations in terms of commerce and passenger’s experience to melt with attractive architecture. We expect this to be the future of successful international airports.

Highlights will be spacious and fully branded retail shops, kiosks and event zones, nicely enveloped into original, contemporary and future orientated Scandinavian Design (made by Detail Design).

Apart from the Pier Zero Bar the new “Sibelius Orchestra & Event Hall” named by the most famous Finnish composer of classic music shall become the absolute highlight of the airport. It will become one of the places to be at the airport and will provide an experience of Finnish classic music to all passengers.
