Armourcoat Acoustic flies high at new Istanbul Airport
Armourcoat’s Acoustic Plaster System has been specified by UK architects Softroom for the new $12billion Istanbul Airport in Turkey. The facility will eventually fly 200 million passengers a year when
complete in 2028, making it the world’s biggest airport.
The stunning interior design for the Turkish Airlines lounges is the result of an international competition won by Softroom. The brief called for 19,000m2 of lounges that embody the national carrier’s new brand philosophy of ‘flow’ within the airport environment. The lounge design forms a passenger journey that effortlessly weaves the spaces, which include drop-off, check-in and departure areas, of the lounges together. To aid the sound quality within the lounges, the Armourcoat Acoustic plaster system creates a
seamless ceiling finish with a class ‘A’ Noise Reduction Coefficient rating. Its clean and smooth mineral surface adding to the overall design.
