2014 - Vágar, Faroe Islands - 7.400 m2.


The airport was built by the British military during World War II, as part of their "friendly occupation". They left deep traces in Faroese society, not least physically in the landscape, with the airport as the most obvious trace.

The local climate is critical condition for the functioning of the airport. The airport buildings are conceived in such a way that they provide shelter from the prevailing wind directions.

The airport is located in an area that is unusually flat compared to the otherwise heavily undulating Faroese landscape. The pick up and drop off apron in front of the terminal is covered. The terminal buildings are assembled in an overall structure that ensures a uniform expression - while at the same time enabling the individual functions to be independently eracted and expanded in accordance with requirements and needs.

The buildings are connected in an arc between airside and landside, which constitutes a security barrier and shelters passengers from the wind. Within this structure the different functions have been adapted and great emphasis has been placed on creating coherence between them. Service functions are placed in a rational and sober building structure, which contains facilities with both one and two floors.
