Horizon, Fraport AG, Frankfurt / Main, Germany - FRANKEN\ARCHITEKTEN


A large, bright band of light, the “Horizon”, unites in terms of design the space of the existing Hall B Mitte of Terminal 1 at Frankfurt Airport and offers high-grade advertising opportunities. A reorganization and emphasis, as regards design, of the functional areas create cross references and improve orientation. Passengers’ attention is likewise directed towards the retail areas within the terminal. This increases the quality of time spent at the airport and of consumption.
