Now more than ever, it is important to redefine the experience of passengers as they travel through airports in the new normal. As countries and airlines gradually ease lock-down restrictions, it’s clear that people want to fly again.
Spacefinish worked with the Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) to design and fit-out art installations at the Lagos International Airport which was constructed by China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation (CCECC).
Being one of Africa's busiest airports, we designed the art installations to serve as a standard of excellence for international travel in the country. Creating an experience that not only entertains and excites passengers but also gives a glimpse of the city.
Redesigned to Restore Passenger's Confidence
Our goal was to redesign the stress points in the airport experience and restore confidence. With the interior design of this new international airport, we set out to first understand and address passenger needs in a COVID-19 world.
Physical distancing and reconnecting to cultural nuances were top of the list as must-haves for future travelers.
Airplanes in Departure Lounge
Conceived with an intricate focus on experience, we installed life-sized airplanes in the departure lounge to give passengers exciting scenery as they travel through the airport.
Paper Planes in a Vertical Garden
The Lagos International Airport represents an innovation in the world of vertical gardens with a one-of-a-kind relationship between interior space and greenery.
The vertical garden is located in the departure lounge of the airport. A garden that not only serves as a beacon but also creates a gentle sense of "paper planes" nostalgia for travelers.
Telling Locally Relevant Stories
The art pieces in the airport celebrate the inherently diverse nature of Lagos State as a melting point of different cultures. By drawing inspiration from different iconic touchpoints in the city, we created a culturally rich experience for travelers.
