The new terminal building of Maastricht Aachen Airport is conceived as an eye catcher for the regional airport. At airside, the departure hall makes a stepped back cantilever as a welcoming canopy for the arriving airplanes. At landside the large sloping roof of the building blends in the surrounding landscape of hills. The monumental interior is finished with local sandstone and regional wood. The building offers a state of the art airport, providing efficient logistics and secure and safe services with a domestic regional atmosphere for the small terminal.
