The urban shape of Le Bourget Airport is characterized by a front of huge hangars between which are placed each company’s terminals. A contradictory situation derives from this, where technical buildingspredominate on reception areas. To reverse this tendency, the new Unijet terminal has been enlarged with a patio and a terrace and the fence has been composed as a façade, to stretch the building to the edges of the estate.

The patio articulates circulations, creates crossed views and enlightens the heart of the building.

The panoramic terrace is an opened roof VIP lounge turned towardthe airplanes sight.

On the north side, the streetfacade turns into a fence, with an alternation of glass panels and stainless steel meshes.

A FACADE INSPIRED BY AN AIRPLANE WING

The facade of the new Unijet terminal is a lightweight, perforated structure on which a smooth skin made of glass and stainless steel mesh has been fixed. Each part has been designed and manufactured so as to become part of a system and serve several functions according to the orientation: high performing thermal insulation, acoustic softening, waterproofing, protection against wind and dust, sign base, view framing, adornment set, etc.
