Gibraltar Airport Terminal Interiors are designed to be experienced as a spacious flow of comfortable, fluid, naturally lit spaces of varying heights where the passenger remains in constant visual contact with the exterior via the glazed envelope or through the circular roof lights. These have been positioned to guide users through internal routes which culminate in the bright airy departures lounge with airside terrace or the main concourse, all of which provide expansive views of the surrounding landscape.  The design of the roof lights generate subtle animation of the space throwing disks of diffused sunlight onto the floor during the day and capturing the blue glow of the early evening.


The terminal’s primary material palette of glass, steel and stone is complimented with the introduction of dark timber elements and visual screens in key areas such as the airside restaurant, the executive lounges and the business aviation and conference facility.


bblur architecture’s comprehensive commission included the design of the terminal interiors, fixed fittings, branding, retail areas and the advertising strategy.
