Heathrow Airport Terminal 2B Fit-out

The fit out for Heathrow Airport Terminal 2B in partnership with Grimshaw

d u s t founder, Anthony Ambrose, worked as a senior project architect at Grimshaw and Partners on a major fit out of Terminal 2B at London Heathrow. The project encompassed the visual, practical and functional concerns of a busy international transport hub, yet it went beyond the brief to bring back a sense of glamour and wonder into travel. This is achieved with a sweeping central atrium characterized by a dramatic 3-storey void, with natural light streaming in through a roof light. Specially designed wall ‘fins’ control the amount of sunlight coming into the space, while defining it and creating a visual point of interest.
