Oslo-based architecture firm Nordic Office of Architecture has won the right to design the world’s largest airport terminal in Istanbul.



The Norwegian team will help develop the 8,000-hectare New Istanbul Airport, which will located on the Black Sea coast, some 35 km outside the Turkish capital Istanbul, according to the company.      

“It is a bit fairytale like to end up in this position,” Gudmund Stokke, partner and general manager at the Norwegian company told Dagens Næringsliv.

The new six-runway airport will be delivered in four phases. The first will open in 2019 with an aim to serve 90 million passengers annually. This will increase to 150 million passengers per year when the last phase is completed. No definite year is given for now

“One of the things we have to take into account is the amount of people who meet passengers,” said Mr. Stokke.

“Building a large square in the front of the terminal where there will be shops and other businesses is one of the solutions.”

Nordic Office of Architecture has specialized in drawing modern airports for several years.

The architecture firm designed Oslo Gardermoen Airport and its new Terminal 2, which is currently under construction.

Nordic has also designed the airport in Hyderabad in India and won several competitions to design other airports.

It will cooperate with Haptic Architects, Grimshaw Architects, and Arup Associates on the Istanbul Airport project.
