Western Syd Airport Preview
RENDERS of what the Western Sydney Airport will look like have been released to the public for the first time.
The designs are the result of a collaboration between Londonbased Zaha Hadid Architects and Cox Architecture in Sydney.
“The brief was to design an airport that the people of Western Sydney can be proud of and provide a real sense of place with a focus on the customer journey and efficiencies for airlines,” said Western Sydney Airport Chief Executive Officer Graham Millett.
“The layout of the terminal, combining international and domestic operations under one roof, will come together with technology and outstanding customer service to give operators and their passengers a reliable, fun and stress-free airport experience,” he added.
The new aviation hub will cater for up to 10 million passengers per year when it opens in 2026, with plans to grow the capacity in stages over the following decades to eventually become the largest gateway to Australia at 82 million passengers per year.
Sustainability is also a key theme of the design, incorporating natural airflows and efficient solar shading.
Qantas and Virgin Australia will also have an opportunity to contribute to the final look of Western Sydney Airport, signing a Memoranda of Understanding with the facility to contribute to the operational design.
“Building a greenfield airport in consultation with airlines means we can provide an optimal operating environment that is customer centric,” Millett said.
