Hobart Airport – Stage 1


Hobart Airport – Stage 1 


Air travel and its associated typology have changed so much in the past ten years that many modern airports seem overly stimulatory, cluttered and clichéd. In light of this, the architect, Misho Vasiljevich, designed Hobart Airport’s new arrivals extension to be a light-filled space, which provides respite (for passengers and staff) from the noise, congestion and visual clutter normally associated with airports. Further, it anticipates the Tasmanian experience of an intimate engagement with the natural environment through artworks and materials.

The advent of budget air carriers has also had a huge impact on the process of transitioning from plane, through security, to baggage claim. This once segmented journey is replaced in this extension by a transparent space through which the passenger can easily move – relaxed and ready to travel into Hobart, or beyond. The range and intensity of experiences a passenger undergoes in this new travel environment are carefully addressed.
