The striking international terminal at Logan Airport provides a world-class gateway for travel to and from Boston.
The newly expanded and renovated space features separated departure and arrival levels with dramatic multistory spatial connections, replacing the outdated single-level facility. The architecture puts forth a friendly, welcoming ambience in which lighting plays a key role.
The vast ticketing hall features a glowing wall of wood veneer laminated on glass, backlit both with daylight and complementary artificial light sources. The warm light humanizes the hall’s grand civic scale.
Continuing this theme, scrim-like backlit glass columns and walls illuminate the retail hall, entrance vestibule and greeters’ area with a combination of artificial light and daylight from above.
