Nicholas Grimshaw & Partners' (NGP) Airside passenger centres at Zurich Airport are under construction. This double-height space - making up the Airside Centre - has a 250m-long roof towering 25m above the ground. It contains retail, catering and lounge facilities, from where passengers will be able to enjoy unobstructed views through a glazed facade. The lower levels will accommodate an extended baggage reclaim area and a large new immigration hall. NGP won an international competition in 1996 to design the scheme.
