Chaudhary Charan Singh International Airport, New Terminal
The design takes references from Lucknow’s unique local heritage and culture
The design for the Chaudhary Charan Singh (Lucknow) International Airport fuses references from the city’s embedded history with a contemporary palette of materials to create a unique sense of place and identity.
Patterns and geometries utilised in the buildings’ fenestration along with an extensive programme of both soft and hard landscaping represent a direct response to the regions’ distinctive and unique architectural heritage.
The GRIHA Four Star design allows natural daylight to penetrate deep into the heart of the building and utilises renewable energy measures including rainwater harvesting, ground source heat pumps and photovoltaic panels.
The 85,000m² terminal accommodates both international and domestic flights for over 10 million passengers each year.
