First look at Pascall + Watson's new Dublin airport terminal
[FIRST LOOK + PLANS] These are the first shots of Pascall+ Watson’s £328 million new Terminal in Dublin
Opened at the end of last year, the 75,000m² T2 building will be capable of handling 15 million passengers per year, both long and short-haul.
According to the practice, the airport’s new second terminal ‘approximately two thirds less energy compared to other equivalent terminal buildings’.
Alan Lamond, the International Aviation Director for Pascall+Watson said: ‘When we received our commission for the masterplan of Dublin Airport and then the terminal we knew this development was one of national importance. Our solution was going to have to capture the aspirations and spirit of the country as well as celebrate the synergy between form and function, and deliver a world-class passenger experience.’
