BASIC INFORMATION

The main facility at Warsaw Modlin Airport is the modern two-storey passenger terminal with the area of 13 380 square metres. It is all simple and functional, in contrasting grey and orange colours. Ergonomically arranged interior part of the terminal and clear division of zones allow the passengers to move about it easily and comfortably due to the fact that departures and arrivals are located at the same level. Clear markings give us the comfort of moving about all the zones without any problems and to quickly reach any area we need. The building is composed of two floors above ground level and one underground floor, where technical rooms are located.

On the ground floor there are 21 check-in points, 4 security checkpoints, lounges, commercial zones with duty-free stores and bars (both in the restricted area and in the generally accessible area), 4 check-in desks, the so called GATE. On the first floor there are offices of the airport personnel, Border Guards and Customs and of the ground handling agent.

For the convenience of passengers with small children, we have provided special rooms to attend to the children: in the generally accessible zone (on the first floor), in the restricted zone in the departures hall and in the restricted zone in the arrivals hall.  

In the generally accessible zone there is a shop, a café, a kiosk, cash dispensers, beverage and snack vending machines, currency exchange, Masovian Railway stand and ticket machine, Modlinbus stand, car rental stands.

The passengers have access to free WiFi in all the premises of the terminal.

IDEA

  • Inspirations taken from aviation - fuselage and aircraft wing symbols
  • Reference to a wing of an aircraft
  • Reference to the golden age of aviation (the 1930s), namely Ford Trimotor, Junkers 52, Junkers 13 aircraft
  • The idea of a gate to the city, passageway to the city, the city's pride
  • References to industrial architecture - exposed main structure of the building
  • Passion for aviation
  • Detachment from the aesthetics of a city and reference to the element of air
  • Lack of superfluous decoration, reference to the modernistic idea of "less means more"
  • Austere materials warmed with wooden elements
  • Material cohesion used inside and on the outside of the building​

FORM 

  • The façade connected with the roof of the building
  • Coherent materials between the main façade and "the fifth façade"
  • Simple body of the building allows to extend the airport by adding new modules
  • Multi-stage project implementation
  • Partly glazed façade in the most important parts - the lounge, the departures hall, extreme parts of the façade
  • Hidden ventilation devices and additional mezzanine lighting due to an internal patio
  • Bay window with rooms for traffic coordination

STRUCTURE

  • Steel lattice girders attractive in form, exposed inside the building
  • The ceiling with sound dampening properties
  • The structure allows to enlarge the airport in the future
