Canberra Airport – International by Guida Moseley Brown Architects
Interior Architecture: National Commendation
Australian Institute of Architects
The architects for this refreshing project have deftly transformed the mundane and pragmatic aspects of international air travel into delight and dignity through careful spatial articulation, restrained materials, purpose-designed furniture and a well-integrated lighting scheme. Here the often-stressful experience of travel is calmly celebrated with a sense of seamless luxury. To achieve such a cohesive and assured outcome, resolving a complex brief within an existing airport shell in a project that was designed, documented and constructed in less than ten months, is testament to the great skill and commitment of the architects.
