PROJECT DESCRIPTION 

NEA ANCHIALOS NATIONAL AIRPORT
ANCHIALOS, MAGNESIA
 
New Terminal Building, the Fire Station and shaping their surroundings are the first development phase of the Civil Airport in New Anchialos Magnesia, which is planned to cover 400 arrivals and 400 departures daily.
New Terminal Building, measuring 100mX45m, is placed on the SE side of the rectangular plot with his big axe in east-west direction and distance of 32m from the aircraft track.
The internal development operations (arrivals, departures, waiting, office support, ancillary services, etc.) has been settled based on the requisite and specific routes system for passenger and baggage, between the city side and aircraft side, so as to ensure operational flexibility and comfort, minimizing the distances, meeting the requirements of people with disabilities, visual continuity, security and possibility of future expansion.
The aesthetics of the building relates to the scale, readability and the simple and clear expression of serving its functions. The combination of functions is determined decisively by the fact that the building is located on a sprawling space without points of reference and comparison.
Processing volumes and facades was also influenced by the requirements of public character, by basic and special features, by the materials (uncoated concrete sections chipped, coats with marble from Cyprus stroked or sandblasted, glass, metal), which led to their disciplined utilization and expression of a tight rhythm that is imposed by grid construction and aesthetic unity of space through homogeneous building components.
