The Airport with 50,000 Downlights

The main terminal building at Istanbul New Airport – seen here in an architect’s computer render – is set over two levels, with more than 10,000 downlights, all angled.  The US$11.4 billion airport – which began its phased opening last month – is set to be the world’s largest when fully operational. Hoare Lea has been instrumental in a lighting scheme influenced by the symbols and imagery of Istanbul’s mosques as well as the creative use of sunlight and daylight design. From a lighting perspective, the project is also massive. From beginning work in November 2014 to handing over to local architects in December 2016, more than 260 drawings were completed, 60 documents and more than 360 calculations. In terms of design, the airport features skylights and an overarching vaulted ceiling in geometric patterns.
