Design of a VIP hall to welcome and bid farewell to the state presidents and an aircraft hangar in Erbil town has been requested. Having two independent entrances, the hangar provides space for one passenger aircraft and two helicopters. At the same time, there is also a warehouse which houses adequate spare parts required for the maintenance. This warehouse is accessible directly from outside through the service road. The two-storied VIP hall hosts an acceptance hall, meeting room, working offices, dining hall and resting places. Its common wall with the hangar is designed as an internal garden. In contract to the modern style in the architecture, the interior space features a classical design in compliance with the regional traditions. The structure also includes the air control center.

The new terminal at Azerbaijan’s Heydar Aliyev International Airport recently opened in the country’s capital of Baku. The landmark terminal features interior architecture and experiential design by the globally acclaimed, Istanbul-based Autoban studio.
Bearing all the hallmarks of the multidisciplinary studio’s experimental, genre-defying approach, the contemporary interiors overturn airport conventions of cavernous space and impersonal experience.

Located at the Hillsboro Airport, this contemporary aircraft hangar provides both administrative functions and maintenance facilities to house the owner’s private fleet of planes. The facility is capable of storing three, full-size business jets and is designed to showcase the planes, which are each graphically unique. Tall glass windows provide visibility into the main hangar, as well as glimpses of the aircraft from the road beyond. Dark-grey ribbed metal and smooth white composite panels articulate the main structure with a roof form that was inspired by a jet’s wing shape. The entire structure sits on an elevated stone podium, which has been planted with native grasses and deciduous trees. Secure parking just off the access drive is bordered by heavy plantings and is articulated by a bold, yellow, operable gate that glides open on a hidden track.
