Twelve unveils Rostov on Don airport scheme

  • Comment

Twelve Architects has revealed its competition-winning scheme for a new airport at Rostov on Don in southern Russia

The London-based studio defeated Pascall & Watson, ADPI, Haptic and several Russian firms to land the project in September 2013.

Planned to complete in time for the 2018 football World Cup, the 50,000m² building is expected to handle around 5 million international and domestic passengers every year.

The arched roof-scheme features an orthogonal and repetitive 16x16 metre grid which is designed to allow future expansion.

A further 100,000m² extension – planned for the future – could see passenger numbers treble.

Twelve Architects director Matt Cartwright said: ‘Part of the competition brief was to create a landmark building, one which is particular to the city of Rostov and is memorable.’

He continued: ‘Our design references the city’s location on the River Don through the use of a large water feature in the main external plaza, which is conceived as a “town square” and connects the airport terminal to the train station, car park, hotel and office buildings.’

The project has won planning approval and enabling works have already started on site. Construction is expected to begin early next year.
