Aeropuerto Tenerife Norte

Tenerife North Airport is one of the busiest airports by passenger traffic in Spain. We present a green and sustainable intervention: The exterior of the building includes many green areas, reflected on the interior by means of arboreal branch-like structures, which seem to bring the outdoor nature inside the terminal room, giving to the architectural whole an organicist character. A bridge, where security is located, provides access to the boarding gates. Arrivals come through the hall for baggage claim, from where it is possible to get to the tangential pathway, or the parking lot.
