Twelve Architects reveals plans for Russian airport

  • Comment

London-based Twelve Architects has landed the commission to revamp Novy Urengoy Airport in north-west Siberia

According to the practice, the design has been inspired by a chum, a temporary teepee-like tent used by the nomadic reindeer herders of the region.

The job is the fourth major airport commission for the firm and the latest in Russia, where it is has recently completed the Platov Airport in Rostov on Don, one of the host cities for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.   

Novy Urengoy sits next to one of the world’s largest gas fields and the airport will serve both the city and the regional oil and gas industry.

The project is backed by Airports of the Regions, part of the Renova Group, one of Russia’s leading private business conglomerates, having agreed a deal with the Yamelo Nenets Regional Government to redevelop and operate the Airport.

Twelve Architects co-founder Matt Cartwright said: ‘Like our other airport projects in Russia, the design of the building is heavily influenced by local conditions and culture, drawing inspiration from the huge variety found within the country.’

The project is due to complete in 2021.
