Landing the deal

Nordic won the project for masterplanning a new terminal in an architectural competition in 2009. We are responsible for planning and designing all phases, right through to completion.

The essence of the west

The new Terminal 3 houses many different areas including waiting lounges, commercial areas, check-in, baggage and goods handling, and office facilities. The overall design concept is influenced by the surrounding scenery of dramatic mountains and deep fjords, both in terms of structure and materials, and the modular design makes for easy expansion of various parts of the building.

How exciting - Terminal 3 is coming to life!
