Hamburg Airport Terminal 1

The ceiling was designed to provide a feeling of open space whilst considering the day-to-day needs of a busy airport. Functionality and looks are the key elements of any ceiling design but has particular emphasis in airports where maintenance is ongoing and can be an issue due to high traffic movements and sheer size of open space. The DOMUS curved metal ceiling installed over the baggage area has a unique design element in that it can be lowered and slid along to provide access to the ceiling cavity without having to be completely removed or disassembled thus reducing potential down time. The service channels are designed to complement the ceilings whilst providing for lighting, sprinklers and security. The curved ceilings emphasise the architecture where cool elegance is required. These timeless systems create a feeling of open space, particularly in rooms with low ceilings. The expanded mesh ceiling also provides a natural acoustic property to the ceiling by way of its open area design but can be further enhanced with secondary acoustic products as required for high noise areas.
