Carsten Voecker, Woods Bagot Director in San Francisco, explains: “The new terminal has been designed with passengers’ comfort and enjoyment in mind, with experts from Woods Bagot’s retail, transport and hospitality teams working together with SFO’s stakeholders to create the ideal airport terminal that will bring back the romance and excitement of air travel”.

The concept for the design is ‘Bay Area Naturalism’: a celebration of the environment of Northern California. It includes a variety of curated spaces that encourage either speed and efficiency or quietude and relaxation, depending on their function. A variety of natural materials including wood and stone will be deployed, with contrasting hard and soft edges juxtaposed to reflect the diverse social ethos of the Bay Area community. The new terminal will include a series of character areas, including a sophisticated, cosmopolitan ‘marketplace’ and a ‘park’ area designed to have an outdoor feel and encourage play.

James Berry, global transport leader at Woods Bagot, said: “Now that construction has started on the redevelopment of terminal one, I am delighted to provide a more detailed insight into this exciting project. I hope that Bay Area residents and visitors alike will be excited by the huge changes that are on their way – when complete, SFO will rank among the very best airports in the world. Woods Bagot is tremendously proud to be part of the project and showcase its customer centric approach to design. I look forward to sharing further details of future phases soon.”
