DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Commercial Area, SJD Airport

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Commercial Area & Vip Waiting Room

INSPIRATION:
Since the initial planning phase of the project, a contemporary and homogeneous commercial architectural image was sought. The formal concept is based in aerodynamic design using curved lines that reflect vanguardism and a morphological integration with aeronautical design. The Food Court Area was inspired by a Picnic concept surrounded by natural vegetation, the chairs and tables are set on an artificial grass floor, achieving an outdoor environment of relaxation and comfort for passengers.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This project join the new trend in green design Airports in the world, being the first of its kind in Mexico. The project incorporates shops and services within the terminal and make the passenger go through an experience during his instance at the Airport Mall creating a whole Image and Brand identity as part of a business and commercial strategy full of differentiating value and uniqueness. GREEN Airport Design Trend. The new commercial area at Terminal 2 of San Jose del Cabo Airport incorporates spaces of a greener and more sustainable aeroportuary design value, positioning Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacífico as a top vanguardist corporation in México. The totality of the commercial area space is lit by natural sunlight thanks to a monumental glass façade facing the runway. This generates significant energy savings in lighting throughout the day and thus creates a more sustainable commercial environment. The interior space is designed as if it were an outside commercial corridor, trying to create a futuristic urban experience for the passengers by providing enjoyable spaces and consequently a pleasant stay while waiting for their flight. VIP LOUNGE: Organic Design and Digital Fabrication. The VIP Waiting Room was designed with an organic and vanguardist cell design concept in mind. The façade is made using a Voronoi type porous skin, which allows privacy in the room without blocking the view to the exterior. The architectural team designed this complex façade by using experimental parametric digital techniques, which solved the 3D formal and structural model of all the support system and its white Aluminum Compound Panel cover, so by these means, all the different and unique pieces are extracted and assembled just like a puzzle.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project is located in San Jose del Cabo, Baja California Sur, Mexico

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Choice of materials. The choice of materials was based in selecting the most appropriate materials following strict criteria of balance between esthetics and durability. The materials also had to respond to a modern and futuristic design that could be at the same time malleable to the project´s curves, always looking for an aeronautical appearance. The material that best covered all these needs was Alucobond, a light composite material consisting of two aluminium cover sheets and a core made of polyethylene. This simple but yet extremely versatile, stable and flexible product functions as a smooth surface façade material. In the food court the use of wood was a priority to create a more comfortable space that could differentiate from the rest. Technological-structural choices. The VIP Waiting Room was designed with an organic and vanguardist cell design concept in mind. The façade is made using a Voronoi type porous skin, which allows privacy in the room without blocking the view to the exterior. The architectural team designed this complex façade by using experimental parametric digital techniques, which solved the 3D formal and structural model of all the support system and its white Aluminum Compound Panel cover, so by these means, all the different and unique pieces are extracted and assembled just like a puzzle.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The research was focused on how we were going to create the digital fabrication of components, especially in the facace of the VIP Lounge. Autodesk Building Design Suite Premium was the key solution to Develop this unique project. For the initial conceptual phase, we relied on 3dsmax Design for laying out and free form sketching ideas, for experimenting on Formal design envelopes and renderings for client's Design approval. "

CHALLENGE:
We got shocked when design was approved by client, asking ourself “how would we are going to do it?”. Founding the solution by 3D BIM modelling the facade with structural supports and surface cover, “unfolding” the polygon faces and delivering the drawing in AutoCAD for CNC Digital Fabrication of all the different and unique pieces of Aluminium panels, were cut and assembled just like a puzzle."

PROFILE:
Our main interest is creativity and design, from small to large scale, whether furniture, interior spaces, or large buildings. Our design philosophy is based on a constant search for innovation, but always user-focused and with a great respect for the environment. We believe that architecture is art, but it must have functional utility to the user, be comfortable and adapt to the site. Architecture should provide a variety of human sensations, it must create a connection between the user and the city, between the site and the environment, and it must be useful, logical, beautiful and sustainable.
