Larnaca International Airport: Creating a stunning design feature with Fire Retardant material

Since taking over the operations and management of Larnaca International Airport, Cyprus in 2006, Hermes Airports have been very busy investing in improvements to enhance the overall passenger experience.Architects, The Design Solution, were tasked with creating a true Cypriot sense of place through the design philosophy whilst establishing a higher quality airport experience for passengers in high traffic areas, particularly the airport’s Decompression Zone. This 200 sqm space consistently sees a high volume of traffic as it is the link between the Security Zone and Duty Free.The material of choice for the direct to DryWall application in the Decompression Zone was SanFoot® Real Wood Veneer for architecturally inspired interiors. SanFoot’s aluminium layer provides strength and structural stability making it suitable for high traffic impactful areas.This, along with being fire retardant as standard to Euroclass B-s1, d0, in accordance with EN13501- 1:2007, ensures critical fire-safety requirements of an airport have been met.The versatility of the material enables the sheets of veneer to be cut with ease to form a soft and rounded path on the walls, subtly guiding passengers to the next area of the airport and creating a natural flow of movement.The theme of Cypriot culture is addressed in the species selection of Satin Walnut Flat Cut (7067) inspired by the carob tree, native to the Mediterranean. The colour contrast of the old (heartwood) and new (sapwood) growth creates an exciting visual and focal point as well a warmth and familiarity through the connection of the carob tree.

In 2019, the one-of-a-kind Starbucks Reserve Roastery in Tokyo opened its doors. One of only six in the world, this four-story Roastery combines the art and craft of coffee in an immersive coffee house experience celebrating Japanese culture.Inspired by the Japanese paper folding tradition of origami, the bespoke wood-tiled ceiling using SanFoot® Real Wood Veneer in Beech Quarter Cut (7009), brings a sense of tranquillity and peace. The art of origami requires you to be fully present in the moment, slow down and reflect, all aspects important with our health and well-being. Combining the positive association of this tradition with the use of the natural wood material, SanFoot®, embraces the biophilic interior design trend where it has been recognised that natural elements in interior design can generate a multitude of positive emotions.The ceiling also shows beauty through the lighter décor selection of Beech Quarter Cut (7009). The intricate dance of light and shadow through the various textured planes reflect on the area’s plentiful beauty. Over 53,000 square feet of SanFoot® was installed across all four floors to achieve this masterpiece.
